Book Review: Holy Women
"Holy Women" by Pope Bendict XVI is a library of mini biographical sketches of some of the most well-known holy women in the Catholic Church. Included are Saints and Blesseds from the third century to the twentieth century.
If you have ever read any of Pope Benedict's work, you know that he has a way with words and you also know that it sometimes takes a minute for it to make sense. He writes in such a deep manner that it often takes me a long time to read his works. This book was no exception. Some of the stories were straightforward but some others were hard for me to grasp until I spent extra time on them. Overall, the book was interesting and informative. Modern women should be inspired by these Holy Women of the past!
This review was written as part of the Catholic book reviewer program from The Catholic Company. Visit The Catholic Company to find more information on Holy Women. They are also a great source for a Catechism of the Catholic Church or a Catholic Bible.
Thanks for stopping by!
