A powerful,powerful book for women and an eye-opener for men Oct 18, 1999
Praying with Visionary Women by Bridget Mary Meehan and Illustrated by Doris Klein,CSA (Sheed and Ward,1999) Praying with Visionary Women is a powerful,powerful book for women -and an eye-opener for men.Going back to the Celtic Brigit of Kildare, all the way to our times when a black women "made Bishops dance",we are treated to a host of women who made a difference in their times,often with great difficulty and personal hardship. The book is powerful as a guide for women who,in our time,are seeking "equality" in the work-place,in the Church,and in the life of "man"kind on Earth.It gives them the knowledge that the "impossible" is possible;that men,even bishops and Popes,can be "taught" that women can,and should, contribute to the world outside the home. Besides the above,as the title proclaims,this book guides one to pray with these courageous women,women such as,Joan of Arc,Teresa of Avila,Elizabeth Seton,the first native-born U.S. Saint,Dorothy Day,co-founder of the Catholic Worker,and Jean Donovan,who was murdered with three other Church women,while working with the poor of El Salvador. After recounting the life of the these wonderful women,we are invited to become one with them,in prayer and contemplation;to enter into their lives and have them enter into ours,so we may have the strength of their example to work for peace and justice and the betterment of mankind and the world.Highly recommended.
