Mary Bielski was our Faith and Good Counsel Show guest on April 16, 2013, talking with us about the Feminine Genius, the cost of radical feminism, and how our worth as women in our culture has been distorted and reduced to what we look like and what we can do/produce. Thanks be to God for Blessed Pope John Paul II and his work, Theology of the Body, Mulierus Dignatatum, his Letter to Women, and others – all of which which remind and educate us as to our true creation as Daughters of the Most High God. We hope all of our sisters in Christ will be affirmed in your feminine vocation you listen in while we chat about how we love, nurture, lead, and serve as women in all of our vocations and stations of life.

Our saint of the day was St. Catherine of Siena. She is such an amazing saint! – one whose piety and holy example inspires me so very deeply. I know you will enjoy Mary Wallace’s presentation of her life on this episode of Faith and Good Counsel.
PRAYER OF ST. CATHERINE OF SIENA
“O omnipotent Father, God of truth, God of love, permit me to enter into the cell of self-knowledge. I admit that of myself I am nothing, but that all being and goodness in me comes solely from You. Show me my faults, that I may detest my malice, and thus I shall flee from self-love and find myself clothed again in the nuptial robe of divine charity, which I must have in order to be admitted to the nuptials of life eternal.”
“If you are what you should be, you will set the world ablaze” St. Catherine of Siena
