Among Women 145: Opening the Door of Faith

Among Women 145: Opening the Door of Faith

The front door from Chartres Cathedral, France.

In Among Women 145 we look at Porta Fidei, the “door of faith”, Pope Benedict’s Apostolic Letter announcing the Year of Faith that begins on October 11, 2012. Plus we talk about the new evangelization in terms of being evangelized ourselves first, and then answering the call to evangelize others.

This week’s “Blessed are They” segment reflects on the biblical account from Mark 5:24-34 of the healing miracle of the unnamed woman with a hemorrhage for twelve years, and the small steps she took to open the door of faith in her life in order to receive the transforming power of God.

Our “Among Women” segment welcomes the blogging-podcasting duo from Of Sound Mind and Spirit, Shelly Kelly and Lisa Jones. These two sisters in real life share their journey of faith in their blogging adventure, and their most recent endeavor, the SQPN podcast The Secrets of “Once Upon a Time.”
