Feminine Genius

Genevieve Kineke is the sort of Catholic woman we desperately need more of: on fire for God, smoothly articulate, wife and mother of five, creative thinker about femininity and the spiritual life...and attractive to boot! Her public career and blog, linked in my title, are dedicated to the proposition that it is now up to women to rescue civilization by understanding the mystical significance of femininity and living it in the visible world. In an era when equality for women typically means women being more like men—which most women don't really like when they come to it—this is a balmy breeze. This man basks in it. Would that I knew more women like this!

Better than any further introduction on my part are Mark Gordon's two recent podcast interviews with her. Hurry: if you don't get there this week, they will go to archive. And by listening, I mean sitting at her feet and absorbing it all. Kineke is a doyenne of the theology of the body.
