Unlock Your Unique Feminine Genius Workbook

1. How You Are Called to Serve The Church And World
As a 21st century woman, you already know that there is a lot of things going on in the world and there is a lot of work to be done. As a 21st century Christian woman, you know that the Church is in dire need of help. We know that the gates of the Hell would not prevail against it, but it is doing a good job of attacking it. The Church would last till Jesus comes back but how many people would be left when He returns? It is disheartening to see the attacks on Church both from within and without. As Christian women, we feel the call to make a difference in the Church and in the world. We have already experienced the glass ceiling in the workplace and it can be frustrating to find similar structural barriers within the Church too. That the Church needs women is an understatement. We have already seen that the world needs women in a special and unique way and the same applies to the Church. But because of the hierarchical nature of the Church, it often seems that the best way to serve the Church is to lead the Church as a pastor -priest/Bishop/Pope. Nothing could be further from the truth.
 “The life of the Church in the Third Millennium will certainly not be lacking in new and surprising manifestations of the ‘feminine genius’”.
(John Paul II, Letter to Women, 1995)
