Thought for the Day – 25 February
In these days of “women’s liberation”, it is good to know that women like St Walburga worked side by side with their male brothers in great missionary works. They are remembered for their independence, their splendid gifts and their devotion to the work of Christ. Their example is still an inspiration today when the harvest indeed is great but the labourers are few. And there is really no substitute for the female gifts – so come all your discerning hearts, go forth and show them!
St Walburga, pray for us!
