Blogging Schedule Ahead

With the onset of the US bishops’ Fortnight, this site will honor free Christian women and review some of their accomplishments over the next two weeks. Over the centuries, they only sought to be free to serve, honoring the movement of God with them. Sometimes that freedom was obstructed from the very Church that first fostered discipleship and discernment.

I’ll move that daily feature into the American morning time slot, so y’all can enjoy it with your morning coffee. Or in Europe, well in advance of the evening news.

I still have four open spots for a worthy woman. If anyone has a suggestion, let me know. Only requirement is that she be deceased. Persecuted by bishops and clergy is not mandatory. I think the battle of the sexes meme has largely played out.

Our friend John Donaghy reports that some busy days are ahead for him, and so posts on Aparecida may be sparse. When I get one, I’ll slot it in around lunchtime in the Western Hemisphere.

We won’t forget papal documents. Dies Domini should wrap up by month’s end. And Pope Francis will still be the subject of a daily post, but likely later in the day.

Only twelve days left in my summer studies. I’ve found that writing here is a good break from academic efforts. If I get into a crunch, Worthy Women will be the priority.

  1. I looked up on Wikipedia and found the name of a woman who was burned at the stake under Mary I’s reign. Of course, since we’re moving away from the religious clergy persecution, she may not be appropriate any more.

    Another suggestion could be Empress Zita of Austria-Hungary. She’s dead.

    Don’t know if you are still looking for more worthy women. Margaret of Scotland is one of my favorites. She and Bridget of Sweden were gutsy women in a time when that wasn’t always honored. Not to mention Brigid of Kildare, who “…wanted a great lake of ale for the King of Kings.”

    Margaret is in the queue. Thanks for the suggestion.
