The Dignity of Women

As you all may remember, I mentioned a few days ago that the Pontifical Council for the Laity has asked the lay faithful to reflect on the Apostolic Letter, Mulieris Dignitatem, On the Dignity and Vocation of Women written by Pope John Paul II August 15, 1988. next year marks the twentieth year anniversary. It is indeed an exciting time for women in the third millennium!

I have put a "Dignity of Women" button in my sidebar which links to the brand new "Dignity of Women" website which has been created in order to provide a comprehensive resource for those interested in ways to reflect on this timely anniversary www.Dignityofwomen.com will point to the Apostolic Letter, Mulieris Dignitatem, relevant books, speakers, study guides, and other initiatives that will bring the beauty of this document to as many people as possible, while continually integrating suggestions, additions, as well as a bulletin board of events to access over the coming year. Feel free to ask for the code to put the button on your own websites and blogs to spread the word.

Feel free to leave a comment about how you think you might like to reflect on this Apostolic Letter. Will you read the Letter? Arrange a study group in your parish? Plan a Day of Refection in your diocese? Feel free to ask questions here as well.

God bless you!
