Heroines

I am a woman. I’m faithful, curious, spiritual, and blessed. I am a Catholic. 

After reading these two articles, I felt compelled to share with you:

From the National Catholic Reporter and from the New York Times.

I have been surrounded by Catholic women since birth, and am better for it. Sisters were some of my first teachers and coaches. They were also the first modern-day preachers and prophets I encountered and who took time to get to know me personally. Today, I know many sisters who are dynamic leaders and role models. Quite a few have provided profound influence on my life.

My heroines, at the foot of their heroine: Srs. Dolly and JP at soon to be Saint Marianne's Grave

Today, Catholics around the world  heard these words:

“When the court officers had brought the Apostles in
and made them stand before the Sanhedrin,
the high priest questioned them,
We gave you strict orders did we not,
to stop teaching in that name.
Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching
and want to bring this man’s blood upon us.”
But Peter and the Apostles said in reply,
We must obey God rather than men.
The God of our ancestors raised Jesus,
though you had him killed by hanging him on a tree.
God exalted him at his right hand as leader and savior
to grant Israel repentance and forgiveness of sins.
We are witnesses of these things,
as is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him.”

When they heard this,
they became infuriated and wanted to put them to death”.

While I wonder about the meaning in the articles above, I do not wonder about these scriptural teachings. Our first Pope proclaims divine wisdom.

I am a woman. I’m faithful, curious, spiritual, and blessed. I am a Catholic.
