What makes someone a good Christian? The answer to this question is rather subjective due to a number of aspects: what you consider sin, how often you must go to church, and so on. One trait of a good Christian that remains true and known is that they love their neighbors — or at least they’re supposed to (Matthew 22:39). Unfortunately, as we see the world progressing, the Catholic church falls further behind. Many Christians seem to use religion as a shield to hide behind instead of adapting to our changing society. They see religion as an excuse to discriminate against their very own neighbors, because of race, gender, and sexuality.

As Women’s History Month comes to a close, The Beacon would like to honor a few of the many female accomplishments and changes made by members of our community.
