Among Women 165: A Theology of Women and New Feminism beneath a Guiding Star

Among Women 165: A Theology of Women and New Feminism beneath a Guiding Star

Screen Shot 2013-08-24 at 6.21.47 PM

This week Among Women looks at the recent news of Pope Francis’ comments about a” theology of women in the church.” I share my reactions, and my recent writing on the subject. I’m also grateful to introduce Leah Jacobson in our “Among Women” segment. Her faith and vision helped to found The Guiding Star Project.

In the “Blessed Are They” segment, I read from St Therese’s Story of a Soul where she describes herself as the “the little flower” and how we find our identity within God’s “garden”.

Among Women also takes the 33 Day Challenge to Pray the Rosary, sponsored by Real Men Pray the Rosary!
