The Nature Dignity And Mission Of Woman

Fr. Karl Stehlin

SKU: 8598  |  ISBN: 9781937843229

Who shall find a valiant woman? far and from the uttermost coasts is the price of her.

Women are attacked on all sides

One side of the attack finds its origin in Protestantism, in which women are sub-par creatures, not helpmates but slaves to men, never to develop the immense talents given by God. On the other side, far more common in our age, women are to remake themselves entirely into the strict imitation of men, breaking down all of the distinctions and differences which are the glory of woman. But what is the solution? Are we stuck in one or the other?

Sister Maria Metz
By no means do they [the talks] suggest, however, that women should go back to being confined to ...

Rather they are about the goodness and beauty of the plan which God has carried out by creating human beings as man and woman. They are about love, which finds its happiness and fulfillment in the completion of ones own being through the particularity and distinctive nature of the opposing sexes.
