Have You Heard the Good News? We Have Women Doctors of the Church

Sister Sarah O'Malley, OSBOn Saturday, August 8, about 25 women and men attended a presentation, Did You Hear the Good News?, about four women who were recently recognized as Doctors of the Church:

St. Hildegard of Bingen, a 12th century-Benedictine founder, writer, mystic and artist;

St. Catherine of Sienna, a 14th century Dominican mystic and writer who helped bring peace to a Church in schism;

St. Teresa of Avila, a 16th century Carmelite mystic, writer and reformer;

and St. Therese of Lisieux, a 19th century Carmelite mystic and writer.

Women Doctors of the Church

Under the direction of Sister Sarah O’Malley, OSB, we learned about the times in which they lived. In their lives mirrored Christ and witnessed to the Gospel. Each had a strong, creative, living faith that enabled her to become a spiritual pioneer in her time and an example to emulate for all ages.

“Listen carefully, my child, to your master's precepts, and incline the ear of your heart. Receive willingly and carry out effectively your loving father's advice, that by the labor of obedience you may return to Him from whom you had departed by the sloth of disobedience.”
