Among Women 168: Mulieris Dignitatem Silver Jubilee

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.
