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 …

In the post-apostolic times we find women still the helpers of man, her coheir to eternal life. Women worked not only for the apostles but with them; they were co-workers; they were fellow-helpers; and in the early ages of Christianity, we find their services equally prominent and equally important; and in later times, we find women who are canonised, freely coming forward not only to help the Church in their charities, but even to take an active part in public affairs.

-Women's Work in Modern Society, 1874
