Among Women Podcast #73: The Young and the Radiant

AW 73 profiles the heroic virtues and ideals of young Catholic women.  You've heard of the soap opera, The Young and the Restless?  That fiction has no lasting value compared to the stories of real-life young women --both young and radiant-- who live for Christ.  You need drama?  You need works of mercy?  You need beauty inside and out? Count on the saints--even the youngest saints-- and the Christians who strive to imitate them!

This week Pat chats about the corporal and spiritual works of mercy and how "what we do"in daily life becomes a ministry in the way we do it for Christ.

This week's podcast also profiles the newest "Blessed"in our "Blessed are They" segment: Chiara Lucce Badano of Italy, who died from cancer in 1990 at the age of 18.  Then, our "Among Women" segment features a chat with Rose Rea, the talented young founder and publisher of Radiant magazine -- for women ages 18-27. Radiant is a Catholic magazine for the fun, fashionable, and devout woman.

Don't forget to send Pat an email (amongwomenpodcast@me.com) or voicemail at 206-338-6077, and tell what role prayer plays in your life! Comments will be used in an AW special on prayer in late October -- but act now! Thanks!

BTW: Here's a video about blessed Chiara, beatified last Saturday!

    I could go with some of the names I encounter daily. Want a list of those? I'm betting I would definitely lose with those. They would amuse you, though.
