In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I'm joined by author and co-founder of ENDOW (Educating on the Nature and Dignity of Women) Terry Polakovic to tell the stories of some of the incredible women Doctors of the Church.

This is a really incredible episode. Terry is a fantastic storyteller and in this conversation she sets up these incredible women Doctors of the Church as the perfect antidote to some of the painful scandals, confusion of doctrine, and in-fighting taking place in the Church today – look to these, says Terry, these amazing "women of hope."

In this episode we dig into the lives of St. Teresa of Avila, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Therese of Lisieux, and St. Hildegard of Bingen as Terry explains how the incredible lives of these saints can provide us with a blueprint and a cause for hope when things both in the Church and the world seem to be a bit hopeless; these stories are a huge source of encouragement!

For more from Terry check out her book, Women of Hope from Our Sunday Visitor.
