"Called to Holiness: Spirituality for Catholic Women" "Putting our talents at the service of others is not pride; it is virtue. Finding other people who have gifts when our abilities fail is not weakness, but wisdom." "Own your gifts and use them to make the world a better place," Catholic theologian Joan Mueller writes. In this practical book she provides us with ideas and encouragement to live and act with courage to change the world, even if our actions are sometimes small. This is a book for all who hear about hungry people living in the park and decide to make sandwiches, who volunteer to teach children to read, who raise money to change systems that provide substandard care to the vulnerable, who can imagine a mothered world. Mueller invites us to discuss and embrace our shared wisdom. A woman's goal, Mueller tells us, is to wake up every morning and ask, "God, what do you need me to do for you today?" and to listen to God respond, "And what do you need from me today?"
