Women of Faith, Women of Hope, Women of Love

"The virtuous woman respects the tastes, inclinations, and opinions of others in all that is not contrary to conscience. With ingenious tact, she draws attention to her neighbor's virtues, speaks about edifying things she has seen, and wields more influence by such delicacy than she would by calling attention to faults. Always amiable and patient, she endures all kinds of disappointments and frustrations with a serene countenance, without anger or resentment." Fr. James Alberione, S.S.P., S.T.D.

"As Christian women we are called to collaborate in the salvation of the world through the vocation of motherhood, whether it is exercised spiritually or physically. A unique privilege of our Blessed Mother's motherhood was her ability to give Christ to the world both physically and spiritually." Marianne Evans Mount
