Product Details

Three Women and the Lord presents three key figures in Saint Luke’s Gospel: Mary Magdalen, the unnamed woman who washed the feet of Jesus with her tears, and Mary of Bethany. 

As Adrienne von Speyr meditates on the Gospel passages about these three women, she explores the particular, personal mission that the Lord gave each one and links it with one of the three theological virtues: faith, hope, and love. 

Through the stories of these women, von Speyr demonstrates that every person who encounters Jesus and receives his mercy is changed by him and given a unique way to reveal his identity as Savior and Lord.

Adrienne Von Speyr

Adrienne von Speyr (1902–1967) was a Swiss medical doctor, a convert to Catholicism, a mystic, and an author of more than sixty books on spirituality and theology. She collaborated closely with theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar, her confessor for twenty-seven years, and together they founded the Community of Saint John. Among her most important works are Handmaid of the Lord, Man before God, Confession, and her commentaries on the Gospel of Saint John.

"Adrienne von Speyr is one of the greatest mystics of the twentieth century. Her insights into the Bible offer a treasure trove of wisdom."
— Fr. Donald Calloway, M.I.C., Author, Champions of the Rosary  

"The abundant harvest of graces hidden in this theological mission for our times still waits to be more fully carried into the storehouses of the Church for whom Adrienne von Speyr was sent. Now, however, a century after her birth, there are many signs to indicate that the moment of her "reawakening" is at hand!"
— Fr. Jacques Servais, S.J., Director, Casa Balthasar, Rome 

"I received far more from Adrienne, theologically, than she from me. Her work appears far more important to me than mine. I am convinced that when her works are made available, those who are in a position to judge will concur with me about their value and will thank God that he has granted such graces to the Church in our time."
— Fr. Hans Urs von Balthasar, Author, First Glance at Adrienne von Speyr
