Catholics for a Changing Church

Catholic Women Preach

A tremendous resource for the church --James Martin, SJ, author of Learning to Pray.

"As you listen with the ear of your heart to the wisdom of women, may you, too, be emboldened to preach the word with persistence at all times and in all ways."--Barbara E. Reid, O.P., from the Foreword

"In this book, Betty Anne Donnelly and Russ Petrus have gathered a liturgical year's worth of wisdom from some of the most insightful, gifted Catholic women of our day. This text will accompany Catholics in prayer and reflection. It will inspire preachers and hearers of God's word. Most importantly, it will remind us all that women's voices have been at the heart of the Christian message since Mary Magdalene first witnessed the empty tomb on Easter morning."--Natalia Imperatori-Lee, author, Cúentame: Narrative in the Ecclesial Present

"From the first Pentecost to our own day, the Spirit continues to pour out abundant gifts on the whole People of God. Central to the gifts bestowed in baptism is the commission to women as well as to men from every nation to proclaim the good news that 'the reign of God is at hand.' This volume of preaching by faith-filled missionary disciples from around the globe is a valuable response to the call of Pope Francis for a 'more incisive role for women' in the Church's mission. The testimony of these women inspires unexpected hope and suggests creative possibilities for a fuller hearing--and living--of the Gospel. At the same time, the collection raises the disturbing question of why we so rarely hear the Gospel preached by women."--Mary Catherine Hilkert, O.P., Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame
