We must be women who are spiritual mothers, women who are full of grace, women of the abundant life. --from Chapter Eight
What happens when women give their lives over to God? They become vessels of grace, bearers of healing, consolation, encouragement and strength to a troubled world. Far from being passive, the woman of grace will actively embrace God's will, actively seek out the suffering and lost, and actively bring God's healing love to others. If she accepts God's call to authentic womanhood, her role, in the words of a closing speech at Vatican Council II, becomes nothing less than to "aid humanity in not falling." Full of Grace
will empower all women to fully embrace their God-given identity. This edition of Full of Grace
is now correlated to The Women of Grace(R) Foundational Study Series. A Servant Book.
