 “Whatever the good God has given me has envy jealousy1always pleased me, even the gifts which have appeared to me less good and less beautiful than those received by others.”

                          ~St. Therese of Lisieux

For Reflection:

How often I am discouraged, jealous, envious, and lacking peace because I see what others have that I do not! Today, I will ask St. Therese to intercede for me that I may not lust for that which I do not have, but be filled with gratitude for that which has been given to me.

Sexuality and Authority in the Catholic b1701 Church Monica Miller  PB 286 pgs Click Here For More Information: INTRODUCTION I told a nun whom I had met on a retreat that I wanted to write a book on the authority of women in the Catholic Church. She responded, "Well, that'll be a short book!" Her statement reflects a definite sentiment of many people both in and outside the Church, especially among feminists. Because women cannot be priests in the Catholic Church, it is, therefore, commonly concluded that women simply do not have any authority. Many protest this situation while others even believe that by God's own design women ought not hold positions of authority anyway.
