"The Cardinal Virtues in Woman" was the general title of a series of four lectures I gave last year at Strathmore University, Nairobi. Naturally, both men and women are equally challenged to live all the virtues. My purpose was simply to consider how particular aspects of these virtues may take on special importance for a woman who wants to preserve her feminine identity in modern society.
Faith Magazine has now published the first two: on Fortitude and Justice. The others are due to appear in subsequent numbers. The present ones can be found among the English Articles, under "Feminism".
My March trip to the United States involved four presentations on canonical topics, in San Antonio, to the Spring Conference for the Judicial Vicars & Tribunal Officials of Texas. If time permits I hope to put some of them into final shape for possible publication. There were also some lectures in Washington DC and area on the present-day challenges to the complementarity of masculinity-femininity. Hopefully, they too can also be published in due time.
Meanwhile, I have a full length book - "Feminism and Femininity" - about 3/4 written. As any writer knows the last 1/4 tends to be the tough part.
"Marriage: Theological Perspectives", a book I did manage to complete last year, has been accepted for publication by Catholic University of America Press, and should appear in a few months' time.
Ronald Knox readers will be happy to know that the original Ronald Knox Bible has just been republished by Baronius Press in a high quality leather-bound edition.
Readers will have noticed the Search engine now integrated into the site. It should help research considerably. As most readers will know, the most effective searches are normally not for an individual word but for a phrase or combination of words. If one wishes, for instance, to search for gift of self or essential obligations or freedom and responsibility, one should enter the phrase, in the search box, within quotes: i.e. "gift of self", "essential obligations", "freedom and responsibility", etc.
