“The great women always recall us to the deeper needs and the greater destinies; and so they try to save the world from the shallow, the slick, the facile, and the cruel, and to show us that the world of men is not meant to be either a battlefield or a laboratory, but a family.”
–Gerald Vann, O. P.
