This course will explore the deep richness of the Catholic understanding of woman. Students will learn the meaning of ‘the feminine genius’, woman’s call to lift the culture, home and workplace to focus on ‘the primacy of the person’, and how the grace of God brings the redemption of femininity. Classes will also include discussion on the power and vulnerability of feminine self-gift, receptivity, intuition and emotion, and a reflection on the feminine genius and redemption as lived out in Our Lady, St Catherine of Siena and Edith Stein (St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross).
