Four Women and the Urgency for God

Recently, Elizabeth Dreyer, Ph.D., gave a program on the lives and works of the four women doctors of the Catholic Church: Teresa of Avila, Therese of Lisieux,  Hildegard of Bingen, and Catherine of Siena. 

Their lives and their works left behind a theology done by women which brought new depth and new wisdom to one's encounter with God.

Feast of Blessed Marie Louise Trichet

Blessed Marie Louise Trichet, co-founder of the Daughters of Wisdom, 1703.

Her feast day is May 7.

In addition to founding this congregation of women, she was the administrator of the hospital and "Poor House" in Poitiers, France. A businesswoman by necessity rather than by choice, several new foundations found her confronting administrators and sometimes even bishops, contract in hand, to save the original nature of an apostolic congregation of universal dimensions.
