An address by Pope Paul VI on the model of Nazareth (and in the spirit of pondering...):

"...We learn from [Nazareth's] silence. If only we could once again appreciate its great value. We need this wonderful state of mind, beset as we are by the cacophony of strident protests and conflicting claims so characteristic of these turbulent times. The silence of Nazareth should teach us how to meditate in peace and quiet, to reflect on the deeply spiritual, and to be open to the voice of God's inner wisdom and the counsel of his true teachers. Nazareth can teach us the value of study and preparation, of meditation, of a well-ordered personal spiritual life, and of silent prayer that is known only to God."

May the Baby Jesus continue to bless you and your loved ones during this season of His birth.

  1. This is the reason I love early morning. I do not sleep much and very often I am awake by 3AM. No noise in the house...alone in thoughts and prayer. Our society has lost a great deal with the noise that now accompanies most of us. Be it radio, TV or even keeping our eyes on the computer...though not sound, it distracts from what is important. The quietest time I ever had for an extended period was when we lost power for six days...that...was heaven.

What is a woman? What does it mean to be feminine? There is softness and hardness, compassion and ferocity. There is contentment and adventure, freedom and service. We're conundrums, especially to ourselves, but we all, in some way, possess beauty, creativity, intuition and love. We were made for love, and we are loved, cellulite and all. Here we aim to show every woman the richness and beauty of her own femininity and explore current issues relating to women in our world. We also wish to share our own experiences - exploring the joys and challenges of stay-at-home moms and single professionals and everyone in between. Welcome! So glad you're here!
