Katharina von Bora Luther was born on this day in 1499. A prayer as we remember her bold life of faith:
God of justice and compassion, we celebrate the life of your faithful servant Katharina von Bora Luther. She loved you, served your people and cared for your creation. Humble our hearts that we may follow her example. Grant us the same boldness of spirit. This we ask through our savior, Jesus. Amen.
This is taken from A Bold Life of Faith: Katharina von Bora Luther, a resource that is available in both English and Spanish as a free download from womenoftheelca.org. It was written by Linda Post Bushkofsky.
