Saint Josemaria Escriva on the courage of women

The Catholic Church hates women? Anyone who knows enough about the Catholic faith will gladly speak otherwise – our faith holds women and femininity in the highest esteem. Here’s one piece of evidence: The founder of Opus Dei, Saint Josemaria Escriva, travelled throughout the world as the movement spread, encouraging the new members. In this 1974 meeting with the founder, Father Josemaria tells young Chilean women what the gospels teach about women.

“I want to tell you that I have great trust in women, I have great confidence in you; I have so much affection for my daughters.”
