I addressed the question of misogyny in a piece I wrote for Catholic News Agency a few weeks back. It got some interesting and angry comments. I think Pope Benedict XVI confirms today the Church's great love and respect for women -- all women -- with special affection for those who embrace their vocations and help to bring others, especially those in their own families, to Christ. He said "he wanted to recognize 'the many women who, day after day, enlighten their families with their witness of Christian life.'"
Women, live your vocation with love and perseverance. The Church loves you! God will constantly bless your efforts!
