But who’s among the 52? I can think of lots of possibilities. Not having seen this book before, I don’t know if Lisa Hendey chose to discuss only female saints, only saints who were moms, only modern saints…there are so many ways to go here.
I’m hoping, though, that she included a chapter on that go-to patroness of homemakers, St. Martha. I’ve got a soft spot for St. Martha, and I imagine that many moms feel the same. (I think Jesus did, too–or he wouldn’t have told her to get over it when her sister wasn’t helping with the dishes.)
This book will be published by Ave Maria Press on November 1 of this year. I’m looking forward to it!
