A Woman of Vision
Who saw, centuries before her time, the potential of women, the need for their education, and the possibility that women could live for God outside the cloister and serve God in the world.
A Woman of Courage
Who braved the misunderstanding and rejection of family and society, who walked to Rome through plague and war to present her pioneering plans to the Pope, who endured shame and imprisonment rather than compromise her vision.
A Woman of Prayer
Whose deepest longings found fulfilment in God.
