Women and Wisdom
Blessed are YOU, Jesus tells us in the Beatitudes. But sometimes, it can be hard to find the Lord in mourning, spiritual poverty, persecution, and so on. Local author Melanie Rigney (a St. Agnes parishioner) will share stories of how women saints such as Therese of Lisieux, Gianna Molla, Mother Teresa, and Dorothy Day lived the Beatitudes… and how those stories can help us on our spiritual journey today. Please join us from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, August 5, for a short presentation, refreshments, fellowship… and the opportunity to peruse Joyful Spirit Gifts’ other selections. Copies of Melanie’s new book, Blessed Are You: Finding Inspiration from Our Sisters in Faith, as well as Sisterhood of Saints: Daily Guidance and Inspiration (both published by Franciscan Media), will be available for sale and signing.
