Twelve Days of Mary: December 3






I've been thinking a lot about the imbalance
of power between men and women.

It's hard not to when 
every day
we learn of men who used their power
to oppress
to assault
to humiliate
women in their workplace.

Many historians think that ancient cultures
who worshipped a goddess rather than a god
were more egalitarian,
disinclined to assign men the power
to rule over and dominate women.
Makes sense to me intuitively. . . 
why get Mother God angry
by implying that incarnate beings
that hold the female energy
are less than?

In our own times,
many religions/sects still pay homage
to one God the Father
and tell us we're created in His image.

Well, what about those of us
who are female?

So I wonder. . . .
what if the Second Coming of Christ
talked about in scriptures
featured a female divine child?
A little girl destined to be
the Savior of the world?

Would that help restore balance
to the Universe?

I think we would all be very surprised but then that is what the second coming is all about - surprise.

You pose an interesting question. I guess we will just have to wait and see!
