    Love the book. Highly Recommended!

    I am inspired by the many forms and ways that the Sacred Feminine is calling to us all today. What an important book, along with many others that call us together as women and men, bringing balanced power and wisdom to all.

    In the old paradigm, women are in competition with one another for the attention of the men. We believed that our value was in our physical appearance and we sacrificed our personal and spiritual power, as well as our deep connection to our sisters, to pursue the attention of the men in our lives. Today, Divine Feminine is teaching us to reclaim our inherent value, power and purpose. We are being called from the corners of the Universe, the hilltops and urban settings everywhere-to speak our truth, value our sensuality and sexuality and join with our sisters to bring spiritual and emotional balance to the world. In doing so, we make a difference in all arenas.

    Our creativity, our vibration, our power and beauty is magnified as we join together and share with one another.

    My book, Blessings From Mary, is yet another opportunity to connection with Sacred Feminine Energy. Blessings and love to all, Sally Bartolameolli.

    Vision of Hope

    For women questioning their diminished presence in a largely patriarchal religion, Margaret Starbird's The Feminine Face of Christianity is affirmation, inspiration and retrospection, a call for involvement and an enlightened history lesson asserting with great conviction the unequivocal importance of the feminine in Christian worship. Starting with the holy mother and the example of Mary Magdalene, Starbird observes that some of Christ's most steadfast examples of unconditional faith and virtue were women; they were, in effect, a sort of template for Christ's ideas on true faith. The paradigm of selflessness was discovered when Mary Magdalene washed Jesus' feet and dried them with her hair; the pinnacle of faithfulness was found in the near-penniless doyenne who gave what few pennies she owned to the church offertory; and was there a more complete vision of generosity and gentleness in contemporary Christianity than Mother Theresa? More than just a survival guide for negotiating the complex contradictions and reinterpretations of the church's often-exclusive view of Christ's teachings, this book thoughtfully includes meditations to connect with God on an individual and spiritual level. In this sense, Starbird's text seeks to give women a choice: re-immerse yourself in the church with a greater understanding and directed passion or apply this newfound knowledge in a personal spiritual journey. Essentially-one gets the feeling-what's most important to Starbird viz. the female reader is a heightened sense of value and purpose; in what forum this inchoate enlightenment is refined is nearly irrelevant. This emphasis on the spiritual journey as a sort of meritocracy by grace stands in brave defiance to the de rigeur standard of uninspired and often materialistic worship found in many protestant churches.
