Happy Birthday, Magdalene Sisters!


Hi Sisters and Readers, all. Today marks the one year anniversary of our very first blog post, and thus of our blog! We got off to a slow start, but, thanks to your feedback and our own comic/tragic adventures, we're ready for the second year of fellowship, discovery, growth in faith and sisterhood. (And, with Edith getting married, it will be a year of changes, too!)

In celebration of this day, we wanted to highlight a few of our personal favorite posts. Thank you all for reading (and praying) with us.

PERSONAL BESTS

From Agatha:
-- I Don't Do is Agatha's rant on bridesmaid dresses. (And, in case you readers were curious, Edith took all her advice!)
-- Talithia Koum: Agatha asks, aren't we all just little girls?

From Edith:
-- The Goodness of God and His Mother reminds us all of the beauty and grace of humanity.
-- The entire Woman Warrior series, conceived and executed by Edith, is amazing, but I think we all agree, her post on Immaculée Ilibagiza was incredibly inspiring, and moved all of us to study her life more.

From Julian:
-- Can't Live With 'Em may have been a bit of a rant, but it touched on some of our deepest concerns, and sparked great debate.
-- Always a godmother, never a God was Julian's honest, pure thoughts on the grace of becoming a godmother for the first time.

BIG QUESTIONS


-- Edith and Julian's thoughts on Catholic Feminism.

-- Can Men and Women Be Friends? Yes. No. Maybe So.

QUOTES, MEDITATIONS, & PRAYERS


-- Pope Gregory the Great's Sermon on Mary Magdalene speaks powerfully to all.

-- Francis De Sales has eased many a heart.

-- Edith's patron Edith Stein helped us keep things in focus.

-- And, of course, we worked hard on the Mary Magdalene Novena and were so grateful your prayed along with us.

(Oh yeah, and let's not forget this.)

Happy Birthday, Magdalene Sisters! Here's to another great year!

Edith and Agatha, thanks for a wonderful year of dialogue about being modern, Catholic, lay, and female. I have learned so much about my femininity. There is still so much for each of us to discover. I look forward with joy to all that lies ahead for us!
