My friend Kristen West McGuire has been a goodly wife, a busy mother, and faithful writer -- and now she offers a gift to Catholic women: a rich newsletter for those who seek truth and wisdom.
Secretum Meum MihiA Newsletter for Catholic WomenWhen St. Edith Stein was questioned about her abrupt conversion to the Catholic faith in 1921, she mysteriously wrote the words, Secretum meum mihi (Latin for "my secret is mine"). She never elaborated, but the sanctity of her life explained her "secret" for all of us.The phrase "SECRETUM MEUM MIHI" is the touchstone for my new spirituality newsletter. I seek to articulate a deep and abiding feminism that inspires women to respect life and work for justice today. Eventually, I hope to publish booklets for group study, books on spirituality and perhaps even host weekend retreats for women!I personally invite you to visit my website, check out the free sample, and see if you'd like to subscribe. Feel free to send this email along to any friends or family members you wish.Each monthly issue will contain:
- an interview with a Catholic woman of note
- a bible study
- a book review (or two)
- a prayer intention
- a historical sketch
- a feature by me, Kristen West McGuire
I heartily recommend this good work, knowing that Kristen shares my vision of authentic femininity and did much to help hearth and Canticle in our salad days.
