Shalom Sistas is a podcast hosted by Osheta Moore—a wifey, writer, entrepreneur, and mom who loves to talk Shalom with her favorite women, her Shalom Sistas. While Shalom is often thought of as another word for peace, it’s actually a deep and wide concept of the world as it should be— whole, flourishing, and vibrant. Being a Shalom Sista is as simple as seeing a need in the world and asking "how can I help?" Every episode, Osheta will introduce a Shalom Sista who asked that very question to share her story and give practical advice that will inspire and encourage women to be wholehearted and seek wholeness in the world right around her. We don’t’ get preachy here, but we do get personal, practical, and at times, a little playful!
Three things you need to know about today’s episode: 1: I sit down with my new friend Claire Swinarski, the host of “The Catholic Feminist” to talk about her favorite saints and how they empower her to be a peacemaker. She shares with us what it means to be both Catholic and a Feminist. 2: We do a “say this, not that” about common misconceptions about Catholics and Saints. Then she shares her favorite three: Saint Therese of Liseux, Saint Gianna Beretta Molla, and Saint Teresa of Calcutta. 3: Then we end the show with what is giving us peace right now. Books we discussed in today’s episode Between the Savior and the Sea My Sisters the Saints My Badass Book of Saints: Courageous Women Who Showed Me How to Live Saint Terese of Liseux: the story of a soul A few important reminders 1: We're praying for each other in the Shalom Sistas Hangout and Newsletter.
