On the Dignity and Vocation of Women (Mulieris Dignitatem) - St. John Paul II
by St. John Paul II
Mulieris Dignitatem defends the equality of women, the vocation to love, the mutual submission of husbands and wives, the on-going impact of Original Sin on male/female relationships, Jesus's modeling of how to treat women, the significance of Jesus's mother for today's Christians, and the nature of the relationship between Christ and His Church including the role of the Eucharist as expressing the total self-gift of Christ and making possible the reciprocal total self-gift of the recipient.
This annotated edition offers contemporary insights that respond to the urgent questions raised in recent decades about the feminine vocation. Insightful questions suited for individual or group use, applicable prayers, and ideas for meaningful action engage readers.
