To be feminine

"To be feminine is not to be weak, but to be filled with a power greater than one's own.  It is the state of every human soul before God, but woman is privileged to bear especially within her body the imprint of this relationship.  It is through her that man learns and receives his humanity, in the revelation of Eve that Adam becomes himself.  She is Wisdom.  Her body is the tabernacle in which the precious blood and body of each new human being is formed.  Her mind integrates the world of the body with the world of the spirit.  She is a reconciler, an intercessor, a mystery, and a paradox."
