I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will strike at your head. - Genesis 3:15

Reflection
The Old Testament recounts the period of salvation history that slowly prepared for the coming of Christ into the world.
It brings into gradually sharper focus the figure of the Woman, Mother of the Redeemer, already foreshadowed in the promise of victory over the serpent. - Vatican II The Church, 55

Prayer
O Mary, you were chosen by God to be the Mother of the Redeemer. Protect me always from evil and obtain eternal salvation for me in heaven with you and your Son Jesus.

(Scripture, reflection, and prayer taken from 'Mary day by day')

Dear reader of The Feminine Gift: happy, blessed New Year!  May our good Lord grant you peace and joy in 2013... and just enough hardship to help you grow in virtue.

With much love and deep appreciation,
Sarah and Tess

About



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!
