Women of the Bible: Sarah

Sarah, the Realist


Here is Sarah, wife of Abraham, the beautiful, the realist, the one who has difficulty believing in the excessiveness of God. She will learn, through the covenant of her people with God, to have faith in the Word, especially in her advanced age. Beyond laughter, she will, in her worn body, experience the God who gives life.

Sarah, you can accompany us in our limitations and in our community doubts and help us to believe, until we give life to our Isaac , the son of laughter, the accomplishment of God’s promise and joy of the entire people.

Word of the Lord: Gen 18; 11-14 or Gen 21; 1-6
