Latest for OSV

Throughout the history of the Catholic Church, in her most troubled and turbulent times, God has raised up great saints as beacons of hope in the midst of darkness. Among these great saints, the four women doctors of the Church stand out as models of courage, wisdom, and trust. Their example and teachings remain with us, relevant to the challenges of our own day, urging us on to renewal with unwavering hope.

“Trust shows the way,” wrote Saint Hildegard of Bingen. These words set the courageous standard by which she, Teresa of Avila, Catherine of Siena, and Thérèse of Lisieux lived. They are the watchword for the Church in every age, and especially in our own.

In Women of Hope, Terry Polakovic introduces these amazing women and describes the troubled times in which they lived and persevered. These women remind us that God can work through anyone to bring about his purpose. They prove to us that, as Christians, we can live in confident hope, no matter the circumstances in which we find ourselves.
