Among Women 182: The Power of Forgiveness

Play

August 27, 2014

This episode:

Opening monologue:  On the unrest of this summer and the timeliness of Francis’ beatification of 149 Korean Christian Martyrs.

“Blessed are They”: St Paula

“Among Women” Guest: Genevieve Kineke

This episode profiles the power of forgiveness as told through the life and pen of author Genevieve Kineke in a recent book, Set Free. This recording was made last year, and it comes with my humble apologies for taking way too long to bring it the listening audience. You may recognize Genevieve’s name from her writings about the feminine genius, and our previous interview. Together we unpack the need we all have to rise above our sometimes messed-up feelings and make an act of the will to forgive another, or to forgive ourselves. Such resolve brings freedom and healing, and Genevieve serves up some practical lessons on the subject.

I’m also profiling St Paula, a 4th century saint from Rome who eventually traveled to Bethlehem and assisted the work of St Jerome.

Plus you’ll hear where I’m speaking next, as well as find link to Catholic sources that are helping bring compassion to those most needy in our troubled world.

October 17, 2013

This week’s episode:

“Blessed are They”: St Ulphia

“Among Women” Guest: Genevieve Kineke

This week we look at the 25th anniversary of Blessed John Paul II’s apostolic letter, Mulieris Dignitatem. My guest is author-blogger Genevieve Kineke who has long studied this document and who recently released a commemorative book edition of John Paul’s letter with commentary and ways you can study this ground-breaking document for women. Also of note, this past week the Pontifical Society for the Laity in Rome invited over 100 women from around the world to meet to study this document anew and discuss its ramifications today.

We’ll also look at the life of a little-known 8th century hermit, St Ulphia of France.
