Sidetracked

I may have started out my day reflecting on Mother Teresa quotes, but then fell in love with Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s vision of femininity instead. This takes me back to my senior year at Benedictine . . .

Liturgy speaks of woman as fulfilling mysterium caritatis: the mystery of love. And love does not mean to have, to own, to possess. It means to be had, to be owned, to be possessed. It is the giving of self for another. A woman may love God mediately through creatures, or she may love God immediately, as Mary did, but to be happy she must bring the Divine to the human.” – Archbishop Fulton Sheen
