"One of the greatest glories of the Church is her noble womanhood. And to-day especially, when the world is in many different ways is seeking to turn our women from the pursuit of the Christian ideal in wifehood and motherhood, there is need surely of recalling the inspiriting stories of these women who sought first of all for the kingdom of God." - From the author's preface. Nearly 400 pages full of inspiring biographies of Catholic wives and mothers from throughout history. Tales are herein told of Catholic wives and mothers who were queens, writers, teachers, poets, founders of religious houses, hospitals and orphanages and those who followed all manner of vocations from the earliest times of the Church. In every department the wife and mother has been chosen by God to help in His work, and here Msgr. Blunt, priest of the Archdiocese of Boston, has brought forth this incredible and inspiring collection of biographies of traditional Catholic wives and mothers, both famous and obscure.
