Strong Women Make Waves – Defining True Strength

“Strong women make waves.” Sayings along these lines support a popular, favored notion in the public square today—the belief that women are strong, that women greatly contribute to society. I am among the many who uphold these sentiments, whose heart beats in accord with this anthem of recognition and empowerment. But, I am curious—what is this strength we refer to? And what does true strength mean?  Is this strength simply about doing it all? About carrying the load on our own? About muscling up and doing what was traditionally men’s work? About climbing to the top of the corporate ladder?…

Mother Teresa’s Call to Love

Mother Teresa, or Saint Teresa of Calcutta, is one of the most well known, loved saints of our time. She spent her adult life serving the poor in India, despite her own medical challenges and spiritual darkness. Through nearly 50 years of not feeling God’s presence in her life, she showed perseverance and followed the path she knew God had intended for her. She was able to relate to those she served, because she understood the feeling of being abandoned and unloved. Mother Teresa took the extremely daunting task of changing the world, stepped back, and loved one person at…

Saint Joseph is widely known for being husband to the Virgin Mary and foster father to Jesus, the Son of God. Although it is believed that he died while Jesus was young, he played an extremely important role in taking care of Him and Mary during His early years. Saint Joseph is easy to look up to in times of doubt and fear.

This protection continued on as…

Dorothy Day And Her Prison Dress

Pictured here is Servant of God, Dorothy Day, holding her prison dress. Dorothy had been arrested, along with 40 other women, for picketing at the White House on behalf of women’s suffrage. She was sentenced to 30 days in jail, she served 15 days before being released, ten of them on a hunger strike. When I see this picture of her I think of her quote, “Don’t call me a Saint. I don’t want to be dismissed that easily” Dorothy didn’t want to be called a Saint, not because Sainthood offended her, but because calling her a Saint was often…
