Holy Women Looked at through the Lens of Diversity


  • Franciscan Renewal Center 5802 East Lincoln Drive Scottsdale, AZ, 85253 United States (map)

Weekend Retreat: Jan. 11-13, 2019

Who are these Holy Women, our foremothers and sisters in the Spirit?

  • Miriam, honored by Jews. Muslims  and Christians as a prophetess…
  • Mary, the subject of an entire chapter in the Koran and bowed to every day by Muslims…
  • The Samaritan Woman, an outsider not even named in Christian scripture but raised to sainthood by Orthodox Christians?
  • And did you know that Teresa of Avila, the great Christian mystic, was born into a Jewish family?

A look at these Holy Women shows us our God has been loved by women of the Abrahamic religions with deep devotion. Their lives and those of feminine mystics of other cultures will inspire you as we share art, poetry, song, and prayer by and about them.
