International Women’s Day: I am a JPII Feminist

B_l7nMsU8AEkHoR JPII Feminist as I see it refers to the idea that all of the ways in which women give of ourselves are reflected in our physical or spiritual motherhood

I am a JPII Feminist.
I believe that God has created women uniquely but in His image.
I believe God calls us to many different roles in our lives
I believe we must put into priority our lives according to God’s calling for us, our responsibility
I believe we are equal to men in God’s love
I believe men and women are gifted but have different roles
I believe children are gifts
I believe we must parent, live, react through our Baptismal role: Priest, (Nurturer), Prophet, (First Teacher), Queen, (Sovereign)
