There was never a moment of doubt that I was reading the very words of these holy women and visionaries. With searing insight, loving compassion and uncanny depth Penny-Anne Beaudoin has pierced the psyche and tapped the soul of heroic and devotional women such as St. Joan of Arc, St Barbara, St Ebba, St Irene and St. Columba of Sens, many of whom were terrorized raped and martyred for the sake of their Beloved, not only by the Romans and Church officials but by family and community members who could not comprehend such uncommon states of ecstacy, and by those who professed love and devotion to a common Diety.

As time evolved these women were canonized and elevated to sainthood, ironically by those whose ancestors had once reviled them.

Holy Cards: Dead women Talking is a poetic testament to the absence of the divine feminine in medieval Christian traditions which has prevailed to this day, and how this oversight has led to tragic unjust and unworthy ends for women of faith through-out the centuries.
