The most valiant of all women is the Blessed Virgin Mary. Although this virtue is most manifest as a gift of the Holy Ghost, it is also manifest in the daily trials of the soldier of Christ who conquers inordinate self - love with God's grace. The valiant (strong) woman does not have to be a St. Joan of Arc, but she must rule well her home in prudence, mercy, justice and truth. In Proverbs 31, the Holy Ghost Himself describes the "valiant woman."
This book is an extended version of discourses delivered to married women. Each address begins with a theme drawn from the final verses of the similitudes of Solomon. Landriot then explains the moral of the passage with a practical brilliance that could only come from a confessor whose heart was well seasoned in discerning the particular characteristics and maternal predispositions of the feminine soul. What emerges is an achievable ideal for every truly Catholic woman. Not one page fails to demonstrate what grace, what beauty, and what joy supernatural can bring forth in the life of a woman called to the vocation of Christian motherhood.
