Overview

What does it mean to be a woman today? Is there a one-size-fits-all answer? How can a woman be truly Catholic and truly feminine, hard-working and creative, and yet be at peace within? How does she nurture life at home, at school, on the job or in the culture?

In this profound yet practical guide, Genevieve Kineke invites women to consider the Church, the Bride of Christ, as the model for authentic Catholic womanhood. "The mission of women is inscribed in the mystery of the Church," Pope John Paul II said. The author explores facets of this mystery—the Church as mother, bride, spouse and teacher, as sacramental, as font of wisdom, source of culture, and life-giving sanctuary—and reveals how women mirror the Church in their core identity.

Faithful to this authentic identity, women will play a critical role in rebuilding a civilization of love and life.

    An excellent book about what it means to be a woman

    Excellent! I loved this book. In brilliant detail, it describes how 'woman's work' mirrors the work of the Church. Femininity makes sense in ways you may never have considered -- 'authentic womanhood' is shown to be not only worthwhile, but vital and holy. Must-reading for Catholic women ... on second thought, for all women (and men.) Genevieve Kineke shows us a vision of *true* feminism, achieved through life in Christ.

    A Burning Torch to Light the Way

    Servant Books has put together an invaluable book for Catholic women at a time in our culture when it is most needed. Author, Genovieve Kineke offers Catholic women the tools to define their true Catholic authenticity in her courageous and honest look at Catholic women throughout the ages. She tells us that the choices made by Catholic women today are ¿pivotal in the battle over the human heart.¿ She instructs Catholic women to arm themselves with the wisdom of the Church, become immersed in prayer and respond with love, so that their true feminine genius may be expressed as they carry a burning torch to light the way for others. Her enlightening and instructive words couldn¿t have come at a more opportune time. Pick up this book, devour it and apply it to your lives. By: Donna-Marie Cooper O¿Boyle, mother of five and author of Catholic Prayer Book for Mothers (OSV Oct. 05) and The Heart of Motherhood, Finding Holiness in the Catholic Home (Crossroad, September 06)
