This was exactly what I needed.
For the purpose of bringing together the material I have been reading in books and what I have been working through in my mind on the topic of Women and Spirituality, this was a seminar like no other I could have wished for.
I am not sure exactly what to do with the whole experience. I will be processing it all for awhile.
One thing for sure, Edwina Gately is a woman who has experienced the working of the Holy Spirit in her life. She is gifted, incredibly gifted to do something her church will rarely allow her to do – preach. She has stories to tell of the goodness and power of God. She has lived out a life of devotion to God. But she, being a woman, is rarely given a voice.
We were priviledged to hear her.
And today, for the first time, I partook in the Eucharist in a Catholic setting. I was not an outsider – my faith made me belong. That kind of topped off the weekend.

– I think I will be going back.
