Feb 07 – Homily – Fr Alan: The Fruitful Virginity of St. Colette

Views 532


 

The virgin St. Colette stands as an example of womanly purity for the sake of the Kingdom of God, especially in our age of immodesty. With her renunciation of self and of the world, God raised Colette to the heights of mystical gifts, favored her with miracles, and used her to restore the primitive observance of the Rule of the Poor Clares.
