 “A tremendous resource for the church.”James Martin, SJ, author, Learning to Pray

“This text will accompany Catholics in prayer and reflection. It will inspire preachers and hearers of God’s word. Most important, it will remind us all that women’s voices have been at the heart of the Christian message since Mary Magdalene first witnessed the empty tomb on Easter morning.” —Natalia Imperatori-Lee, author, Cúentame: Narrative in the Ecclesial Present

“Catholic Women Preach meets a sacred yearning to have and hear the voices of women in the church through the unique perspective of their own preaching. . . . They each have something important to teach us, and it would behoove us to listen. Just as Mary sat at the feet of Jesus, captured by his words and teaching, we too should sit at the feet of these women teachers. This book gives me hope for the future of women in the church.”—National Catholic Reporter 

This series of three volumes, following the A, B, C Cycles of the lectionary, offer homilies by Catholic women from the around the world. This is drawn from an ongoing project, “Catholic Women Preach,” which has featured videos every Sunday for six years. Though the texts are available on the website, this series will make them available in print form for weekly meditation, an inspiration for homilists, and a resource for courses in homiletics.
