Among Women 251: A Year with the Mystics

In this episode:

“Blessed are They”: St. Faustina

“Among Women” Guest: Kathryn Jean Lopez

This week we catch up with Kathryn Jean Lopez to examine her book, A Year with the Mystics. We share about the how the Christian life is enhanced by learning more about the mystics and great saints who have gone before us. Kathryn reads an excerpt from the book, and Pat does, too, in the saint segment dedicated to inspiration from St. Faustina’s Diary.
