A Portrait of a Catholic Christian Lady

I'm flipped through the Catechism of the Catholic Church and haven't found anything that specifically discusses women's roles within the framework of the Church. That doesn't mean that there isn't anything out there discussing what the Church has said about the roles of women. Looking at Vatican documents, there are several discussing women's roles. Here are a few:

LETTER TO THE BISHOPS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
ON THE COLLABORATION OF MEN AND WOMEN
IN THE CHURCH AND IN THE WORLD

by Pope Benedict XVI

LETTER OF POPE JOHN PAUL II
TO WOMEN

POSTOLIC LETTER
MULIERIS DIGNITATEM
OF THE SUPREME PONTIFF
JOHN PAUL II
ON THE
DIGNITY AND VOCATION
OF WOMEN
ON THE OCCASION
OF THE MARIAN YEAR

http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/apost_letters/documents/hf_jp-ii_apl_15081988_mulieris-dignitatem_en.html


And there is this website, which is not officially anything from the Church, but is simply one persons or persons' opinion.

Hope you enjoyed this series. The next Wednesday's post will a series of topics related to creation, but not all on the same topic. Topics will include the end of times, stewardship, greed/gluttony, etc. Hope that you will keep reading for those.
