The Priesthood of the Heart: Woman's Unique Vocation
The Priesthood of the Heart: Woman's Unique Vocation is a beautiful title. It could seem provocative or enigmatic to some, but the author of this book is not seeking to develop a thesis or launch a "new concept." She is not following a current, nor is she part of a counter current. Rather, she believes that: "The hour is coming, in fact has come, when the vocation of woman is being achieved in all its fullness..." as Vatican II affirmed. In this work, a woman speaks to women simply, warmly, humbly. She passes on to them that which she has shared with numerous others in private and during conferences: many women have thus been enlightened to live in a new and full way the specificity and beauty of their identity, their unique vocation, and to take their true places in their homes, in the Church and in society. Mrs. Croissant invites them to bring to realization that which each of them is called to be: daughter of God, spouse of Christ, mother of men and of all humanity. This book is for all women no matter what their state in life, but it could as well help more than one man understand the mystery of the woman. "The book... converns the uniqueness of female spirituality, with special reference to the times we are living in. It would be a very good answer to the philosophy of secular feminism and a great affirmation for Catholic women." - Rev. Kevin Scallon, C.M., St. Vincent Ministry to Priests.
