So it has come to this.
Theresa Martin has begun a blog. If it weren't for the opinions of misconstrued truths, vile reactions and hatred coming from all corners, I probably wouldn't be blogging. Yet, with every reaction there is an equal and opposite reaction. I know that I am only one piece of the enormous reaction, that is the Catholic Church, pushing back against those who attempt to shred her of her religious freedom. Yet though I am only one piece, it is needed. As Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta said, "all we do is but a couple drops in the ocean, but without our work those drops would be missing." Indeed, Fr John Hollowell nailed it in his recent 'I have a say' video, "Here comes the Catholic Church"!
I do not begin such a blog with the presumption that I have all the answers, but with the courage to give true feminism a voice, a forum, a podium from which to shout, "we are women! Hear us roar!"
I pray that this might be an inspiration to many women, from all walks of life, who will take up their own pen and add a post to share on this blog. The goal would be a place of unity. Every woman is a woman. I realize this is obvious, but it is also profound. Whether each individual woman has opinions on the right or the left, republican, democrat or libertarian, each woman is first and foremost a woman.
And it is from that starting point, that we will jump in. So I invite you! Join me, join us - breathe in and believe in the great beauty that is your femininity!
