A Book of Saints and Heroines
The world needs Christian heroines: women of faith and courage who will serve God and neighbour in every different situation. Down the centuries, there have been remarkable women heralded as saints: martyrs, mystics, missionaries, women involved in politics and community life, women working in education and in medicine, women raising families, women shining with courage in grim or terrifying places. This book is about some of them, including some honoured by the Church in recent decades, whose stories are only just beginning to become known, heroines for new generations to discover.
