St. Gianna Beretta Molla was a physicianWithout going into that whole debate, we can make an observation that Ms. Katie avoids:
St. Zelie Martin was a lacemaker
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton &
St. Katharine Drexel built schools
St. Joan of Arc was a soldier
St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross was a philosopher
So it looks like women working IS a good thing...huh. Wow.
ONLY TWO OF THOSE WOMEN WERE MARRIED WITH KIDS, those being St. Gianna and St. Zelie.
It's not so easy to make a case for mothers working outside the home, especially if fathers are ALSO working outside the home, given the sociology we have today. 'Fess up, Katie.
St. Gianna very much was married with kids and a physician.
You read my post exactly right!!
But note also: the lace biz was an "in-home" biz, and it's likely that St Gianna's practice was also home-based, as was the custom even here in the USA through the 1940's.
