I was listening to Interfaithradio.org on my local public radio station and got to hear this very interesting interview of Colleen Carroll Campbell, author of My Sisters the Saints: A Spiritual Memoir. It is a very sympathetic interview which I think you all should hear. Click on the link below to hear it.
From the website: Colleen Carroll Campbell used to be a college party girl—she cared more about resume-building than religion. Then her father gave her a biography of Teresa of Avila, a 16th century Catholic saint. When Campbell picked up the book half-heartedly, she had no idea that she was about to embark on a spiritual journey through the lives of six female saints. As she later struggled to come to grips with her father’s Alzheimer’s, these women became Campbell’s guides and companions.
