  WOMEN AND THE WORD

A preaching initiative that provides parishes and other Roman Catholic communities with the experience of hearing the Word of God proclaimed from the experience of women of faith.
 THIS  WEEK'S  SABBATH  REFLECTION

Have you had a "crisis"experience”?  What would such an
experience have had in common with the  two principal biblical stories unpacked in this homily?

Why should humility in a crisis be the foundation of our prayer?
