Ah! poor women, how they are misunderstood! And yet they love God in much larger numbers than men do and during the Passion of Our Lord, women had more courage than the apostles since they braved the insults of the soldiers and dared to dry the adorable face of Jesus. It is undoubtedly because of this that he allows misunderstanding to be their lot on earth, since He chose it for Himself. In heaven He will show that His thoughts are not men's thoughts, for then the last will be first.
