The Catholic Church wants women to remain ignorant, to be "barefoot and pregnant" (to use a crude expression), and to shut up and sit down? Them's fighting words.

19) St. Virginia Centurione Bracelli, 1857-1651 – Married by the age of 15 & a widow by the age 20, she took a vow of chastity and lived her life in that manner until she died.

St. Anna Maria Gesualda Antonia Taigi (b. 29 May 1769 - d. 9 June 1837) was an Italian woman who was beatified by Pope Benedict XV in 1920. In Trastevere, San Crisogono, I was able to see the incorrupt body of St. Anna Maria Taigi. She was a little bity thing but what a heart! It was wonderful seeing her incorrupt body...like meeting an old friend in a strange city. She looked like she would just about sit up and talk...Patron Saint of mothers & housewives & victims of spousal abuse. YBH
