Woman

March is Women's History Month. Yay. In honor of this celebration, I will be posting a few things about women (hopefully before March is over). My first is some links to learn more about the woman, Mary, the Mother of God. If you want to see woman's ideal, look to her. If you want to see the Christian ideal, look to her. If you want to see the human ideal, look to her. Behind the Lord Himself, she is our greatest teacher. As Fr. Gareth said recently, "Those who have a problem with the Mother of God have more problems than they know." Christ came to us through Mary; we should go to Him the same way.
