Just another study that demonstrates that a person's sex cannot be reduced to feelings or even to the sex organs.
There is so much to pray about in our world, and so many deeply confused people. Hopefully this politically incorrect science will find a hearing:
"Sex differences were also prominent in all major brain parameters, including higher rates of cerebral blood flow, higher percentage of gray matter tissue, and higher interhemispheric connectivity in females, compared with higher percentage of white matter and greater intrahemispheric connectivity as well as higher glucose metabolism in limbic regions in males.

Doing the Devil's work

Book Review: Love, Henri
On this day when the Universal Church commemorates the Epiphany of the Lord (we in the US celebrate it on Sunday), it is fitting to highlight a really good book for spiritual seekers . I haven't even finished the book yet, but it is so good I am doing a pub...

Occupation
I entered the Daughters of St. Paul in 1975 to share the community's charism of (in the words of Pope Paul VI, then gloriously reigning) "give the Church new ways to express herself" through communications technology. Now everybody's doing it! In these many years I have been involved in door-to-door visitations, catechetical workshops, writing (religious ed texts, children's prayerbooks, coloring books, and even articles of interest to grown-ups!), singing (with the Daughters of St. Paul choir (http://www.facebook.com/DSPchoir). After almost 14 years in downtown Chicago, I am now transitioning in to a year's assignment in England to help our sisters in theUK develop a web project and get social media efforts organized.
