I'm in the process of reading a book for a review that I'm doing. This book is apart of series that is being packaged as "Spirituality for Catholic Women". That is why I thought my question would be best in this section.
The particular book that I'm reading/reviewing seems to have feminine undertone and at times a clear tone that is sending up red flags. It's a concern to me because this book is being marketed as a book for "Catholic Women Spirituality". This worries me because I worried about the messages it is sending.....
In this book there is mention of woman being "co-creators with God" and at one point in the book there is a pray to "God Our Mother" and "Christ Our Mother".
I've tried googling for the Church's teachings on this matter, but I keep getting topics on Mary. 0f course this is not what I'm looking for. I also found one site that seems to be quoting Pope John II saying something about how we should pray to God our Mother, but when I tried to googling this more I came up empty handed.
Every site seems to be quoting the same person who in return is claiming to quote the Pope. So I'm certain that Pope John Paul II never said anything like that..... Seeing I can't find any other source. The only source is some John Doe claiming he said that.
Any insight on the Church's Teaching on this matter will be a great help!
I'm looking for the Church's Teachings regarding:
1) Women being "co-creators"
2) "God our Mother"; "Christ Our Mother"
and what if anything this has to do with woman spirituality? And further more what is orthodox Catholic Women Spirituality?
