National Lutheran Pastor’s Wives Day

Ok. Actually the commemoration of Katherina Von Bora, the wife of Martin Luther. Legend has it she was the author of the “What does this mean?” portions of the catechism, as Martin would ask himself that aloud, and Katie told him. Like a good pastor’s wife, full of wisdom.

They would also write and direct children’s Christmas programs for their kids at home, since that sort of thing didn’t happen at church.

Give thanks for Katherina today, and also say a special prayer for your Pastor (or Priest’s) wife. They bear much for the kingdom, sometimes more than their husbands do.
