For those of us who are sister-less, let’s thank God for our moms, girlfriends, and, sometimes when they get older and can fill the role more fully, even our daughters when we require a little (or a lot of) sisterhood in our lives. But what about calling upon our sisters, the saints?
In our current culture where the saints are deeply misunderstood, ignored, and sometimes worse…in this same world where true God-given femininity is deeply misunderstood and perverted, then pedestaled and sold to the masses as the one and only real feminism, we desperately need honest, humble voices like Campbell’s to speak the Truth. In sharing her own personal struggles and her spiritual and intellectual encounters with the saints, we witness and understand the beauty and strength of God’s hand in our lives.
Not your typical memoir, not your typical book about saints. Campbell’s book is for Catholics and non-Catholics alike. And, ladies, you will be inspired!
