Christus Vivit 11: Young Women Of The Old Testament

Compared to males, there aren’t many examples of female positivity in the Bible. But Pope Francis found a few:

11. A Jewish servant girl of the foreign commander Naaman intervened with faith and helped him to be cured of his illness (cf. 2 Kg 5:2-6). The young Ruth was a model of generosity in remaining beside her mother-in-law who had fallen on hard times (cf. Ru 1:1-18), yet she also showed boldness in getting ahead in life (cf. Ru 4:1-17).

The Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation can be read on this link at the Vatican site.
