As you listen with the ear of your heart to the wisdom of women, may you, too, be emboldened to preach the word with persistence at all times and in all ways.
—Barbara E. Reid, OP, from the foreword
This volume emerges from a groundbreaking project, “Catholic Women Preach,” which for the past six years has offered online video reflections on the Sunday liturgical readings (and other feast days) by a host of gifted Catholic women from around the world. Altogether, the contributors to this project represent an extraordinary range of voices—religious and lay, scholars, activists, and pastoral leaders of every age and ethnicity. This first volume covers Cycle A of the liturgical calendar, offering an invaluable resource for weekly meditation, an inspiration for homilists, and an aid to enriching the church with diverse voices and experiences.
