In Saint Genevieve: A Woman for all Ages, Mrs Rydelek brings back into the light for Eastern Orthodox Christians one of those Saints of the West who were canonized before the Great Schism in 1054, whose lives and works can inspire, from whom we can draw strength through prayer and veneration. Saint Genevieve, Patroness of Paris, lived in the troubled times of fifth century France. Readers should marvel at her boldness and great zeal as she, as a woman, comes to the defense of those wronged. Likewise, they should be edified by the instruction of her words and the example of her life. Her history reveals a woman filled by the Grace of the Holy Spirit, Manifested in the many miracles she has performed through the power of Christ in her. Althrough she has attained a level of righteousness and holiness reserved for God's manifest saints, she remains an icon of how free will can operate in the human creation. In her choices, her focus is always on doing what pleases the Lord. "Have faith in God - He will not abandon us - If we fast and pray and keep our faith; trust in Him"
