Saints And Other Powerful Women in the Church
by Bob & Penny Lord
Bob and Penny have taken 10 of the most powerful women in the Church of yesterday and today, and shared them in a way that can be understood by all. They write about these women in their simple and engaging style, which has placed them among the most popular Catholic writers of the day.
Each of these 10 women are Role Models for the faithful of today. Read how they suffered rejection by their peers, discrimination because of sex, and how they rose above all of it to become movers and shakers of the world. There is a common thread, which gave them the strength to go on when others would have backed down -their devotion to the Holy Eucharist and Mother Mary and an unbending commitment to their vows, most especially that of obedience.
