What is Christian Femininity?
Christian femininity is a way a life. It is living in accord with God's design. This entails not only accepting God-given gender, but celebrating it! Living one's life in such a way that one intentionally opens her heart to what it means to be truly feminine. This involves allowing and desiring one's nurturing, maternal heart to blossom as well as opening her heart to embrace the cross and sorrows of life, as Our Lady did. Instead of ignoring the sorrow, allow the sweet, maternal heart to be pierced through.
The Vocation of Womanhood
The specific vocation of womanhood is that of nurturing maternity. It is characterized by sweetness and receptivity. In its pure refinement, the feminine charism is the very nectar of the human race. With divine grace added, this feminine distillation becomes the most life-imbuing of liquers, the most soothing of balms. Feminine sweetness, therefore, is to be most highly prized, treasured, and cultivated by all authentic Christians.
"Imprisoned in the spiritual jail
of secular categories, women fail
to understand that their true
mission is to swim against the
tide and, with God's grace, help
restore the proper hierarchy of values."
-Alice Von Hildebrand
