Women Saints

365 Daily Readings

Daily inspiration from women of great spirit. Madonna Sophia Compton recounts the mysterious and faith-filled lives of women saints—from St. Germaine Cousin, the humble, French shepherd with a withered hand, to the world-renown Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico.

Servants of God in the Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican, and Protestant faiths, these devout seekers shine a spiritual light, providing guidance and inspiration for all of humanity.

Each entry on these singular women includes a short biography, a prayer to the saint, an antiphon, and scriptural readings.

Reviews and endorsements

“This book is truly a book where women (and men) can find an honestly ecumenical, timeless, cross-cultural, and cross-racial group of women of holiness.  This book is meant to be a kind of abbreviated liturgical breviary, and accompanying a short biography of each saint are readings and prayers.”

"365 Christian saints from both Eastern and Western traditions are surveyed in a set of daily readings which pairs a biographical review of the saint's life with scriptures and original prayers to honor them. This makes for a powerful set of daily reflections and new information: perfect for the collection and spirit of any avid Catholic reader, especially those with an interest in the women saints."
