The Women’s Consultation Group at the Pontifical Council for Culture released a video inviting women to submit a photo or a one-minute video of their “vision” for their role as women. To do so, the video or photo should be loaded on the internet, with a link sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 4, 2015. This stirred up a bit of controversy among Kathy Schiffer at Patheos (who offers an English translation of the Italian video), Fisheaters Forum, and The Tenth Crusade , and Creative Minority Report before the Vatican took the English language video off of YouTube.
In any event, having decided that I should respond to an invitation to create a photo about my vision for our role as women, here is my entry in response to the invitation:
I don't remember who took the photo. It is me with a group of friends and our priest from Church of the Nativity, Rancho Santa Fe, California, at the Secular Carmelite promises ceremonies in Redlands earlier this month. Here's a link to an earlier post long ago about the meaning of zeal. #lifeofwomen
