Called to the sacrament of priesthood she, a woman,
became a prophet to the Catholic Church
at the threshold of a new millennium.
"This profoundly Catholic
book has a bonus:
a stunning portrait of a bishop with guts,
Felix Davidek, Ludmila's mentor and the man who ordained

Davidek is a model of what a people's bishop could become
in the 21st century." Robert Blair Kaiser, Contributing
