Women's History and Global Goddesses
By Julie Blog Loar

March is Women’s History Month, and March 8 was the 100-year anniversary of International Women’s Day, a global celebration of the economic, political, and social achievements of women past, present, and future. In some places, such as China, Russia, Vietnam, and Bulgaria, International Women’s Day is a national holiday.

I have seen tremendous change in the past fifty years, and the opportunities for my daughters and granddaughters are quite different from what faced me when I graduated from college. Today, a resurgence of the sacred feminine is sweeping the planet, and I wanted to know who the Goddess really is.

By New World Library

Christian Mystics

365 Readings and Meditations That Celebrate the Mystical Path

As a member of the Catholic Dominican Order for 34 years, Matthew Fox held closely to the mystical teachings of Christianity, teachings that embraced the feminine, the natural world, and social justice in their vision of the sacred. Fox's approach continually put him at odds with the Vatican, and in 1998, he was expelled from the Order by Cardinal Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI.

Mother Teresa on Silence
By New World Library

This excerpt on silence comes from a newly released edition of In the Heart of the World by Mother Teresa. This powerful portrait of one of the most beloved women of all time is told in her own words through a fascinating blend of daily life experiences, prayers, and spiritual wisdom. Enjoy!

* * *
“Yesterday is gone.
Tomorrow has not yet come.
We have only today.
Let us begin.”

In the silence of the heart God speaks. If you face God in prayer and silence, God will speak to you. Then you will know that you are nothing. It is only when you realize your nothingness, your emptiness, that God can fill you with Himself. Souls of prayer are souls of great silence.

A colleague recently asked me to answer the following question. It was such a good question, I found myself writing far more than I expected, and thought it would make a perfect blog post:
