Among Women 232: On the Cusp of Advent

December 2, 2017

This week’s episode:

“Blessed are They”: Blessed Mary Theresa Ledóchowska

“Among Women” Guest: Connie Clark

This episode begins with a few advent tips, and then it shines a spotlight on the life of two women who, as writers, offer their gifts for the sake of the Church, and advancing its mission. Blessed Mary Theresa Ledóchowska is a Polish saint whose writing for the missions eventually blossomed into a religious order. And Connie Clark is a prolific Catholic author with numerous Catholic titles including the one that recently prompted my contacting her, Pep Talks for Catholic Parents. She’s also the editor of Living Faith Kids(Find more of her book and booklets in the links below.)
