Saint Teresa of Avila - A Woman of Substance
Last edited 14th October 2015

Today (15 October) the Church honours the great Carmelite mystic, St Teresa of Avila, who started a reform of the Carmelite Sisters and Friars in the 16th century. Teresa was a woman of exceptional human qualities – warm, intelligent, witty, charming, adventurous, articulate and humorous too. We are familiar with her celebrated saying: “God deliver us from sour-faced saints!”

Celibate Mothers carry Forward the Sexual Revolution
Last edited 12th October 2015

Child psychotherapist Dilys Daws said the fact that virgin women were resorting to IVF “suggests someone who is not emotionally mature enough to be close to someone else – and that matters when it comes to bringing up a child. It implies the woman has a fear of having a close physical relationship with someone else, in which case the baby will not be brought up with that love.

The Life and Lessons of St Thérèse of Lisieux
Last edited 1st October 2015

St. Thérèse of Lisieux is one of the most unlikely heros of the Church - she died at the age of 24 in a little convent in the north west of France. She was known only to her family members and a few nuns when she died. Yet when her writings where discovered after her death, she became not only a Saint, but a Doctor of the Church.

Learning to Love Me
Last edited 15th September 2015

As a teen girl growing up in a body-obsessed culture, I can say in all honesty that I have really felt the effects of it. Airbrushed models, celebrities with “perfect bodies,” and weight loss commercials are constantly blared at me from TV, store ads, and billboards. As a young girl viewing this twisted idea of beauty, I now realize, as I reflect, that it has had a great impression on me, and consequently the lives of everyone around me.

It’s been eighteen years since Mother Teresa suffered a heart attack and died at 87 years old on Sept. 5, 1997 in Calcutta. She would have turned 105 years old this year. The day after she died, she was set to lead an interfaith memorial prayer service in Calcutta for her friend, Diana, Princess of Wales, who had been tragically killed in a car accident one week earlier.

Dorothy Day is the Perfect Role Model for Post-Abortion Women
Last edited 7th September 2015

As a 21 year old, Dorothy Day had a dalliance with another journalist, and became pregnant as a result. The fellow pressurised her to have an abortion, and in September 1919, 86 years ago this month, Day made a decision that she would bitterly regret for the rest of her life. She had an illegal abortion. Afterwards, Day was weighted down with a guilt-fuelled depression. Reflecting on Day’s distress, it calls to mind Pope Francis’ words last week, when he described post-abortion women as bearing, ‘the scar of this agonising and painful decision’.
