The Feminine Genius of St. Scholastica

Colin MacIver

We’ve all heard of St. Benedict, but people often neglect to mention Benedict’s twin sister, St. Scholastica.

Colin talks about what we know about St. Scholastica (suffice to say, she made it rain) and how she is a fantastic example of what St. John Paul II called the feminine genius.

For more on St. Scholastica, check out Colin’s article The Scholastica Option: Women Who Make it Rain.

 

Snippet from the Show

Don’t buy into the cultural lie that the empowerment of women is to become like men. Women, for who they really and truly are, offer the Church something great, something that men cannot offer, something that St. John Paul II called the feminine genius.


Meet Your Host, Colin MacIver:

Colin is an enthusiastic transplant to vibrant Louisiana, where he lives with his beautiful wife Aimee and two energetic children, Leo and Zélie. His juggling act involves being a husband, a dad, a teacher, a youth minister, a musician and a national Ascension content creator and trainer.

In his spare time, he eats too many crawfish, savors king cake, plays one-on-one kickball with his son, and tries, for the life of him, to properly load the dishwasher.
