Wednesday, August 12
7:00 - 8:00 PM


What can we learn from the words and actions of Macrina, Catherine, and Teresa?

These three women saints lived centuries ago yet continue to impact the Church today. Macrina the Younger worked with her brother, Basil of Caesarea, to establish monastic settlements in Asia Minor. The inheritors of their legacy are the Sisters of St. Basil the Great. Catherine of Siena was a formative leader who helped resolve the crisis of the Avignon Papacy. Teresa of Avila wrote brilliantly about prayer and remains one of the most important mystics. What can we learn from their words and actions?
