Points to Ponder

Feminist liberation theology hopes so to change unjust structures and distorted symbol systems that a new community in church and society becomes possible, a liberating community of all women and men characterized by mutuality with each otherp and harmony with the earth. Elizabeth Johnson CSJ, She Who Is, 3

[…] the Christ is not exclusively the glorified Jesus, but the glorified Jesus animating his body which is the Church.  Christ said to Paul ‘Why do you persecute me?’ (Acts 9:4) because the literal fact is that the Christ is composed of all the baptized.  This means that Christ, in contrast to Jesus, is not male, or more exactly exclusively male.  Christ is quite accurately portrayed as black, old, Gentle, female, Asian, Polish. Christ is inclusively all the baptized. Sandra Schneiders Women and the Word
