Women's Voices

by Deboran Everist | January 30, 1993

They came from all over
     Bahrain, Turkey, Rome:
A little band of women
     with hope all their own
To learn and to study,
     To become stronger in their faith
To encourage one another
     In the footsteps of the saints.
Priscilla, Praxidis, Paula
     And of course, our Theodora;
How many of the others
     Have been thoroughly ignored?
But more important is how
     Do we know
How Many of these women's voices
     Were lost in Long Ago?
