Margaret Anna Fridays

Every Friday, I’m going to share a quote from the founder of my groovy sisters, Margaret Anna Cusack, known in religion as Mother Francis Clare. This week’s installment …

It was a woman who bore the scorn of the Pharisees, and the contempt of th world when she threw herself at the feet of her God, and washed them with her tears of sorrow for her sins, and the rich ointment of her poverty. Let us learn from her to bear contempt, and coldness, and indifference in well-doing, and to fear God rather than man.
-Women's Work in Modern Soceity, 1874
