Check it out: a new resource specifically designed for Catholic women, just launched by St. Anthony Messenger Press, which combines books, reading guides, CDs, online author interviews and even e-greetings. They’ve done a fine job of creating a good resource for individuals, small groups and faith formation programs in parishes. SMP has gathered all this under the title of "Called to Holiness." America readers will recognize among the series’ distinguished authors Sydney Callahan and Dolores Leckey. (Photo at right from one of their e-greetings.)
Here’s how their website describes it: "The focus of the Called to Holiness series is spirituality. Its interest is women of all backgrounds: rich and poor; married and single; white, black and brown; gay and straight; those who are biological mothers and those who are mothers in other senses. There will be volumes on grassroots theology, family life, prayer, action for justice, grieving, young adult life, the wisdom years and Hispanic heritage. I hope all the volumes in this series will deepen and shape your own spiritual life in creative ways, as you engage with the theology of our rich, two-thousand-year-old Christian tradition."
