The Holy Women Provide for Jesus

 

Luke 8:1-3

 

Jesus preached the good news of salvation.

The twelve Apostles were Hall of Famers.

Christ helped many women become holy.

They gave Him devotion and assistance.

There was cooperation with Jesus.

 

Mary Magdalene was the first witness

To the Resurrection.  Joanna was

Also witness to the Resurrection.

Susanna was also helpful to Christ.

 

Saint Monica prayed for Saint Augustine.

 

Saint John Paul II interpreted Scripture.

Men are adequate because of women.

 

My mother, Virginia; my wife, Gretchen;

And my daughters-in-law provide for me.
