Lena Francis Edwards: a remarkable story of a franciscan laywoman

"Lift as you climb"

I wanted to share this biographical sketch of a truly remarkable Secular Franciscan who dedicated herself to those most in need.  A pioneering black catholic laywoman and medical doctor. She is a heroic and modern example of our vocation as a life of determination, service and love.  This will inspire you.

The podcast is by the prolific Catholic podcaster, Fr. Seraphim Beshoner, TOR at catholicunderthehood.com .  It was originally broadcast last November.  The following link will bring you to the shownotes and resources
