God’s Superheroes Amazing Catholic Women
Author: Mary Bajda
Illustrated by: Melinda Steffen
Superheroes are everywhere — in movies, on television, and in video games. It’s exciting to think about these extraordinary people with amazing powers who save us from evil and are a force for good in the world.
But did you know that God has real-life superheroes of his own? They started out as ordinary people. Then something (God!) happened to them, and they changed.
God’s Superheroes will introduce you to more than three dozen amazing Catholic women, including Saint Brigid, Saint Joan of Arc, Saint Josephine Bakhita, Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, Venerable Satoko Kitahara, Saint Teresa of Calcutta, Servant of God Thea Bowman, Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, and the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The women in this book went out into our world with courage and determination. Whether as mothers, religious, or teenaged girls they stood against evil and made a difference. Some even had superpowers — they could be in two places at once, or read minds, or heal sickness! They all used the talents God gave them and sacrificed to change the world for the better. They are still champions for good today, and these are their stories. These amazing Catholic women want to stand by your side throughout your adventures and help with the obstacles you face. They want you to become one of God’s superheroes, too!
