SORT BY Relevancy
With 50th anniversary of Vatican II, Pope Benedict XVI is on a mission to rein in what he considers its liberal excesses. The most visible target in his crusade is the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, which represents 80% of the Catholic sisters and nuns in the U.S. who work in education, health care, social services, and parish ministries. Is this power struggle between nuns and the male hierarchy purely a 21st century phenomenon, or do historical precedents exist?
In Illuminations: A Novel of Hildegard von Bingen, author Mary Sharratt weaves historical fact with psychological insight and imagination, bringing to life one of the most extraordinary women of the Middle Ages who was canonized this year.
Born in an era of deep-seated misogyny, Hildegard was entombed within two small rooms when she was 8 and expected to live out her days in silence as the handmaiden to a renowned and disturbed young nun. After 30 years in that prison, Hildegard triumphed against impossible odds to become one of the greatest voices of her age. She composed an entire corpus of sacred music and wrote nine books on subjects as diverse as theology, natural science, medicine, and human sexuality—a prodigious intellectual outpouring that was unprecedented for a 12th century woman. An outspoken critic of corruption, she courted controversy and nearly died an excommunicate. Hildegard’s courage and originality of thought, as well as her ethereal music, continue to inspire people of diverse faith backgrounds today.
Mary Sharratt is an award-winning author who has written the acclaimed Daughters of the Witching Hill, Summit Avenue, The Real Minerva, The Vanishing Point, and co-edited the subversive fiction anthology Bitch Lit, which celebrates female anti-heroes--strong women who break all the rules.

Blessed Mary of Pisa -- More often than not, the women saints that the Church venerates have been cloistered virgins. Blessed Mary of Pisa also founded a religious order, but like St. Elizabeth Seton, she did so as a widow. Unlike our American saint, she had been married twice and borne many children.
Catherine Mancini belonged to a distinguished family in Pisa, Italy, in the days when the great Italian cities were engaged in civil war against each other. The story is told of her that when she was only five, she had a sort of vision of the torturing of one Peter Gambacorta. He had been accused of political conspiracy and sentenced to be hanged. The legend says that the child, on experiencing the vision, prayed so hard for Peter that the rope by which he was being hanged broke, whereupon the judges commuted his death penalty. Our Lady then appeared to Catherine, the story continues, and told her to say seven Our Fathers and Hail Marys for Gambacorta every day, for he was going to become her benefactor in the years to come.

We return to Africa one last time for the dramatic and chilling finale of the Virgin Mary's appearances in Rwanda.
On July 2, 2001, the Holy See released the declaration of Bishop Augustin Misago of Gikongoro, on the Apparitions that took place in 1982-83 in Kibeho. Here are some excerpts:
“Two study commissions, one of doctors and one of theologians, were immediately set up by the local Bishop; they have been at work since April 1982... The advanced state of the study commissions' work now offers sufficient elements to allow competent ecclesiastical authorities to pronounce definitively on this question.
“As a result, Bishop Augustin Misago of Gikongoro, who represents this authority, has published his declaration concerning the definitive judgement on the Apparitions of Kibeho, Rwanda. This important event in the history of the Diocese of Gikongoro, as in the life of the Church in Rwanda, took place on 29 June 2001, on the solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul, during a solemn Mass concelebrated in the cathedral of Gikongoro. All the Catholic bishops of Rwanda, with the Apostolic Nuncio of Kigali, were present...
“The Bishop declared: Yes, the Virgin Mary appeared at Kibeho on November 28, 1981, and in the months that followed. There are more reasons to believe in the Apparitions than to deny them... The Apparitions of Kibeho are now officially recognized... The name given to the Marian sanctuary at Kibeho is"Shrine of Our Lady of Sorrows".
“I’m not dead, not really dead. Not like people think.” Such were the words of Mary Lia's beloved 19-year-old daughter Juliette through a medium after she transitioned from cancer. The recently released book Between Two Worlds shares the poignant words of both mother and daughter, beautifully unfolded in three sections: the first, the journals and poems of Juliette in the last 7 years of her life; the second, her mother Mary's reflections and recollections; the third, the story of what a medium had to convey when contacting Juliette.
Mary Lia is a retired chiropractor who lives with her husband and son in New York. She currently works with Special Education students at the Middle School level. An avid runner, Mary has completed two marathons. She is often seen pushing her handicapped Australian Shepherd in a bike stroller. She and her husband are motorcycle enthusiasts who have participated in the legendary Sturgis, SD rally.

Mary Elizabeth Thunder (website)(facebook)
-Peace Elder-Spiritual Leader-
See Thunder's full bio here
In 2005, Mary Elizabeth Thunder was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, as part of 1,000 Women of Peace. The nominated women commit themselves daily to the cause of peace and justice, often under the most difficult circumstances. They call for reconciliation and organize peace negotiations, they rebuild what has been destroyed in villages and cities, they fight against poverty and create new sources of income. They struggle for access to clean water, land and other resources. They care for those infected with HIV and give war orphans a home. They denounce violations of human rights and publicly condemn all forms of torture. They silently protest in public places and seek solutions to all forms of aggression.
They work in their own villages and regions, in organizations and universities. Some are members of their governments or are active on the international scene. To be nominated they had to fulfill stringent criteria, such as: sustain ability of their work, integrity, the inclusion of all parties to a conflict, or being part of a wide network. The 1000 women are leaders, they are beacons of hope for all people, they are demanding and do not give up
Got a spouse who's into Reptiles? Hey, don't laugh! It happens all the time. Sometimes, your mate's 'other' passion can grow on you to a point where you suddenly have something really cool in common besides the burning flame you share for each other. There are lots of folks out there that put the 'mom and pop' in a mom and pop business, but Grant and Mary Hubbard don't just keep the wheels turning at Wreckroom Snakes, they truly enjoy every minute of it. CK catches up with the Hubbards to see how splitting up the workload with well defined tasks that play to their respective strengths helps Grant and Mary get 'er done, and have some fun, all at the same time.
Some of you may have attempted to listen to this show on 10/5/2014. That show took place, but was never recorded by blog talk. This episode is the re-do of that ill-fated show. Hope you enjoy.
