LIFE OF WOMEN: Pontifical Council for Culture Video and Photo Project

Ewwww. Women. Disgusting!
Women thinking and expressing themselves?  Egad! 
Run away!  
RUN AWAY!

Anytime the topic of women is discussed by those in authority in the Church, some traditionalists throw the usual Spittle Flecked Nutty over issues of women and the family.



 

Yeah, okay.  The clip is a bit weird.
The idea, is fantastic.
Imagine, Church officials listening to women.

#LIFEOFWOMENAt the Pontifical Council for Culture, in the Vatican, they have taken inspiration from Pope Francis’ openness and are reflecting on women’s cultures and the place for women in societies today, between equality and difference.At what point are we today, as women?I am sure you have asked yourself many times, who you are, what you do, what you think about your being a woman, your strengths, your difficulties, your body, and your spiritual life. If you want to, you can share your vision.Why not tell it with a one-minute film, or in a photo. Put your work online with the hashtag #LifeofWomen, and send a link to lifeofwomen2015@gmail.comIt could be chosen to be part of the opening event of a great meeting of cardinals and bishops in Rome in February 2015 and as part of a crowd-sourced film on YouTube.You have until 4 January to send in your materials.You are important!

Women, traditionalist, liberal, and just plain old Catholic of every rite and patrimony, should take this opportunity to let those in a position of authority in the Church to know about their experiences and outlooks. 

There are many issues that effect Catholic women that the Church does not often consider or discuss. This is an opportunity to have your voice heard.

  1. "Egad" reminds me of Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons! He could be the Fat Sponge in cartoon form, of course.

  2. "Ewww....those women, Ewwww...it's all about that menstrual thing, Ewww...unclean."
    " Rocco, my smelling salts!" " I'm having an attack of the vapors."
    " Take off your shirt and massage my feet."

  3. Zagano: PhD, retired naval officer, successful woman...

    Zuhlsdorf: No degree, no service... Not even a successful woman.

  4. The menstrual thing...LOL!

    Reminds me of the Catholic lady married to an Orthodox gentleman who asked his Russian priest if he ever considered the fact that since the altar area was limited to males that it was really nothing but a SPERM factory.

  5. I think that 12/31, 10.54 am has identified a major cause of Lard Ass' disgruntlement with women and that are their general class, competence, education and achievements are beyond even his wildest fantasies and imaginative fabrications.
    The Sisters belonging to the institutes covered by the LWCR are probably the most educated and professionally competent women in the western world who just happen also to take the Evangelical Counsels seriously.

    No wonder Zuhlsdorf hates and despises them with such passion. Bringing to bear his personal contempt on them provides him with a convenient distraction from his sine-cure,sine-cojones, self-absorbed pathetic existence.

  6. The clip is very weird. It comes across like a commercial, an attempt to sell something. The actress is, well, an actress. I get no sense of reality - a real woman telling me a real story, something true. BUT - I agree with you D, though it is off pitch, it does open the door. The men are going to be very surprised at the feedback that they get now that they have asked, regardless of the weirdness of the commercial. I liked Phyliis Zagano's suggestions.

    3. Beth, Dr. Z made some excellent points. Thanks for bringing that to our attention.

      I think the English video may have been pulled for cultural reasons. I was way out of cultural bounds for most North American women. What do you expect from a Curia that has ignored women for centuries who have been goaded into engaging them?
      I'm not trying to make excuses for them. It was a wacky ad.

      I hope they make some of the responses available to the rest of us.

  7. Zippo the Absurd blames Eve for the guy's cancer. No wonder the ignorant clown was turfed, out of two seminaries - for being incorrigibly stupid as well as for other reasons. And the poor miserable dumb scruple-ridden bastards are forking out thousands for the imposter to peddle such crap:

    "First, I am really sorry that you have cancer. If I had it my way, no one would have to suffer with cancer. We can blame Eve for that. Then blame Adam. I am also sorry that you are ill. Blame Eve. Etc.

    You have no idea where you picked up that flu bug. No. Idea. At. All."

    1. Ari, I am in shocked disbelief at this post to which you refer.

      It's Eve's fault...

      I took Father D's New Year's message to heart and resolved to be better... Unfortunately I failed.

      FUCK YOU Zuhlsdork.

    2. I read that over at WDTPRS...absolutely horrible. He should be ashamed. He is always finding reasons to encourage people not to go to communion. The more people he can exclude, the more special he feels. There is a lot pathology in religion, and there are certain elements in Catholicism that really play into the kind of pathology Z has. Amazing how regular non-religious people can be kind and generous as a matter of course, with no need to talk themselves up and all the rest.

    3. Blame is a favorite word for that guy, isn't it?

  8. Zildo's monthly rectal thermometer is now set at FIVE thousand dollars. The boy wants $60k annually to blog. A blogger who has no more depth than articles in the Catholic Encyclopedia and entries in Lewis & Short thinks he ought to command $60k as a writer. A writer! (I mean no offence, writers out there, but it's not a lucrative business.)
    This man is so deranged that for at least the second year in a row his predictions for the new year include:
    10. Fr. Z will still not be a Monsignor.

    Now, you might claim that this is a little self-effacing humor. The good father is poking fun at his own pretentiousness, you might say. I'm not convinced. I think he believes that he's doing something qualitatively better than other priests and he think he should be recognized for it.
    This "Ten Predictions for 2015" list is so aflame with pathological spite and loathing it ought to be studied by therapists.

  9. The Grand Dumbass' deviance is attracting compound interest these days as he gets a stronger whiff of the collective psycho-pathology generated by the eccentric boutique clergy of the Confraternity of Silly Sacerdotes who gather in Roma this coming week for a group Vat I navel gaze.
    This gathering, the reader will recall, is the one Zippo disingenuously flagged as 'This one's on me.'

  10. To the Rev. JT Zuhlsdorf:

    You almost received a modicum of credit and the acknowledgment that just as a stopped clock, you could be right twice a day. Unfortunately you have taken the tragedy of the death of a hit and run victim and turned it into a screed flatulently trumpeting your arrogance against women and your ignorance about the rights of other churches to exist in the United States.

    I wouldn't have felt the need to write this here today under ordinary circumstances. I heard from an old friend who is a Catholic priest and this event came up in our discussion... He immediately paused and said we should pray for the victim's soul, the victim's survivors AND for the driver who caused the accident.

    God visited me with the company of a real priest today, a priest who is ALWAYS a priest, unlike you, a lace and brocade festooned charlatan moneygrubber glutton.

    1. Ignorance of the geography also made that complaint stupid. Baltimore is not Washington. That the Washington Compost actually did run a story about a traffic crime in Charm City is prima facie evidence they didn't "bury the lede."

  11. A hasty, near breathless report from the flying Brown Nose as the latest 'My View for a while' begins:


    "Today the names of the new Cardinals were announced. They will be given their red hats in a consistory on 14 February.

    The one that interests me is His Excellency Most Reverend Luigi De Magistris, Major Pro-Penitentiary Emeritus. Alas, he is over 80. He is exactly the sort of man I would want to vote in a conclave.

    I have described him sometimes as “the last Roman priest”, even though he is Sardinian. Arcbp. De Magistris has had a remarkable career and it was my great privilege to get to know him and to work with him a bit when he was a member of the Pontifical Commission “Ecclesia Dei”. I would often run into him during his daily walks, and we would walk and talk and I could pick his brains. Also, he often walked by my ground level window facing into the courtyard of the Palazzo del Sant’Uffizio. He would stop and, through the window (almost as if visiting a prisoner), share anecdotes, witticisms, proverbs, bits of advice. Meeting him in the highways and byways, he was the consummate gentleman priest, humble and at the same time perfectly aware of his office once he was consecrated.

    I learned a great deal about the inner and even hidden workings of things from him."

    What no red hats for "Mile High Hat" Sample, "Princess" Vigneron, Bob the Blimp Morlino? Wherein Zippo will, no doubt, rant......
