The Quebe Sisters Band: Texas Fiddle & Swing

The Capitulation of Catholic Higher Education to Egalitarianism

The trend is everywhere.

Either TPTB at TAC TAC support this nonsense, or they are willing to ignore it for the sake of publicity and enticing future customers. There may be sex-segregated dormitories but they do pitch a co-ed liberal arts education and whatever some may say about sex differences on campus, their advertising in posts like this does not match what some claim the college represents.

A face of Catholic feminism: Dr. Pia de Solenni (’93)

This is why she is grateful to her alma mater for the formation she received there. “I am glad to see some of my fellow alumni working in the public arena,” she adds, “and I hope that more graduates of the College will be interested in applying their formation to more public and professional careers. In particular, I hope we will see more women from the College taking on more public roles in ‘every aspect of society.’ Naturally, one’s family comes first, but some women are both able and willing to take on public roles at different times in their lives. We have been given so many talents, it would be a shame to hide them from ourselves, our families, and our communities, as if we could hide them from God.”

When asked about Pope Benedict XVI’s understanding of the role of women, Dr. de Solenni recalls, “When he was head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, then-Cardinal Ratzinger published a document titled On the Collaboration of Men and Women in the World, in which he specifically states that women have a role in every aspect of society. Just this past February, he addressed a conference of the Pontifical Council for the Laity on the anniversary of the publication of his predecessor’s apostolic letter Mulieris Dignitatem saying, ‘God entrusts to women and to men, according to the characteristics that are proper to each, a specific vocation in the mission of the Church and in the world.’”
And towards the end:
“It seems to me,” she continues, “that we have spent a lot of time trying to prove that women and men can do the same things. Well, now we know that men and women can do just about all of the same things. So, instead of talking about doing, I hope the focus is shifting to a discussion of being. We need to talk about what being a man or a woman contributes to what we do. Ultimately, it is a question of developing our understanding of metaphysics as it applies to the human person.”

Pia de Soleni won a Papal prize for writing a dissertation upon this theme. She is from the United States and graduated from Thomas Aquinas college and did a doctorate in Rome.

Christian Feminism: A Fuller View of Woman

Engaging feminism rationally, through a discussion of sex differences, is mostly pointless, especially if one avoids the questions of headship in the family and political authority. One does not waste dialectic on those capable only of rhetoric.

Catholics like the contributors of the New Emangelization don't get the extent of the problem or are blind to it because of their ideological commitments.

While she may seem to be a "social conservative" one should keep in mind that mainstream "conservatives" have moved leftward and are just behind the liberals in their "progressive" push to change society.

The Basic Message of Opus Dei

Upholding modern capitalism and feminism?

From the English version of the website:
With the supercaption "Finding God in Work and Family," linking to Message: Work, family life, and other ordinary activities are occasions for spiritual union with Jesus Christ.

I think the primary subject of the photo, who is illustrating the basic message, is the physician not the mother.
