Dear friend of St. Athanasius Academy:

Please remember our prisoner-students. Let them know we care. (Mat. 25:34-40)

THE FAITHFUL BRIDE OF JESUS OUR CHRIST
JUDITH - THE LIONESS OF JUDAH

In honor of the many wonderful women living the gift of His boundless grace.

The Book of Judith ( OSB - Septuagint Old Testament, pages 578 - 595) speaks of the true beauty of a woman whose first love and only faith, is in the One Lord God of Israel - the I AM of the Old Testament. Her sincere devotion and great courage of faith, was revealed most brightly when King Nebuchadnezzar brought his war of revenge against Israel. Interestingly, the name Judith is the feminine form of the word Judah - the lion of the tribe. Lioness is a name she wears well.

While most leaders in the town of Bethulia, preferred to negotiate - even test the Lord - after Nebuchadnezzar sent the ruthless Holofernes to war against them, thankfully and with great courage and conviction, Judith thought and declared otherwise.
