The Dignity of Women podcast focuses on reclaiming femininity in the modern age. It challenges feminist viewpoints and the objectification of persons. The Dignity of Women calls us to higher virtue and nobility of character, so that men must aspire to be worthy of us, and that through Christ, beauty will save the world.

The Dignity of Women – Episode 008 – The Lego Catechism

Kevin and Mary O’Neill. The O’Neill’s are a Catholic homeschool family with seven children.  Mary is a stay at home mom with a degree in elementary education. Kevin runs the family landscaping company, which has given him ample time to listen to Catholic audio and to read on the off-season. As a result Kevin now considers himself a product of the New Evangelization.

 

Their idea for the Lego Catechism was born when their kids brought a popular children’s Bible to their attention and upon realizing it was blasphemous, Kevin and Mary knew that they were being called to create a catechism on the seven sacraments, utilizing theology of covenant and typology to teach the truth of the Catholic faith.   

 

The O’Neill’s “Catechism of the Seven Sacraments” is the first book in a series. It uses typology to explain the necessity of the Sacraments in our relationship with Christ and His one, holy catholic and apostolic Church. The books are published through Storytel Press – a private non-profit foundation on a mission to inspire people to restore the sacred. Kevin and Mary are new to the world of publishing and the Catechism of the Seven sacraments is their first book.

The Dignity of Women – Episode 007 – The Abolition of Woman

Fiorella Nash is one of the leading modern Catholic feminist voices in the Church today. As I read through her recent book, The Abolition of Woman: How Radical Feminism is Betraying Women, I was overwhelmed by her mastery of the work – her vast research into feminism, the abortion industry, the fertility industry, and gendercide issues. Fiorella’s faith and understanding of human nature, social responsibility, and inviolable human rights clearly determine her pro-life convictions. I challenged Fiorella on how feminism can possibly reconcile with the pro-life stance, and what is left, if anything to “reclaim” of the feminism of ages past!

Author and bioethicist Fiorella Nash joins me on The Dignity of Women podcast. Fiorella is a writer and bioethicist in the United Kingdom with over ten years’ experience researching life issues from a feminist perspective. She speaks often at international conferences and has appeared on radio and in print discussing abortion, gendercide, maternal health and commercial surrogacy. She is also an award-winning novelist and has published numerous books under the nom-de-plume Fiorella De Maria, including Poor Banished Children, Do No Harm, and We’ll Never Tell Them.

The Dignity of Women – Episode 006 – Srs., Mercy & Veronica

The Sisters of Life is a contemplative/active religious community of women founded in 1991 by John Cardinal O’Connor for the protection and enhancement of the sacredness of every human life. Like all religious communities, they take the three traditional vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. The Sisters of Life also are consecrated under a special, fourth vow to protect and enhance the sacredness of human life.

Sr. Veronica and Sr. Mercy of the Sisters of Life join me on The Dignity of Women podcast. This podcast was a special treat because I was able to visit the Sisters in their Yonkers, NY convent and record in person! Amidst the joy and laughter that filled the time we spent together, there were deep messages shared by the Sisters that are necessary for us to hear and to ponder.

The witness of religious Sisters in our culture is certainly a testimony to the love of Christ, through his brides, which is unlike any other witness on earth. I felt that it was imperative to welcome Sr. Veronica and Sr. Mercy on a podcast dedicated to the dignity and worth of women.
