Among Women 180: Working Women, Leadership, and the Devotional Life

May 30, 2014

This episode:

“Blessed are They”: Saints devoted to Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

“Among Women” Guest: Mary Wallace

On this episode I welcome back Mary Wallace, PhD, from Louisiana State University. Together we discuss the feminine genius, and the particular leadership strengths of women in the world, and listen as Mary makes suggestions for strengthening the devotional life in working women. In this particular episode, rather than focus on one particular saint, I’m offering commentary on adoration of the Blessed Sacrament drawn from the quotes and writings of some women saints. We’ll explore the thoughts of St Jeanne Jugan, St Therese of Lisieux, St Elizabeth Seton, St Bernadette Soubirous, St Catherine Labore, and Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.
