Blessed Among All Women: Women Saints, Prophets, and Witnesses for Our Time

From the best-selling author of The Saints' Guide To Happiness comes this new collection of devotional meditations, which reaches beyond the official saints to recall the lives of women throughout history whose faithfulness, selflessness and struggles speak to the needs of our time. Here, martyrs, missionaries and reformers share their unforgettable stories and draw us deeper into the mystery of the Beatitudes - sanctity, the struggle for justice, poverty of spirit, and merciful love. Blessed Among All Women includes reflections on St Mary Magdalene, Bd Mother Teresa, Dorothy Day, Emily Dickenson, Anne Frank and many others who offer a unique glimpse of real women who struggled with their own flaws and foibles but nonetheless lived lives of action, conviction, and holiness.
