The Father is the only person who is His own origin. All other persons, divine, angelic, human, and (possibly) extra-terrestrial receive their personal identity from the Father. "One God and Father over all."

"Call no man father."

The Church is a patriarchy because of the all-male hierarchy.

Jesus is the Bridegroom; the Church is His Bride. We are all feminine with respect to His masculinity.

Women, by nature, teach receptivity (wu wei).

It is a mistake to work on interior decorating when the foundations are crumbling. First things first!

Don't gripe about the sins of others--not of our enemies and not of our sluggish priests. "Be a saint" (Kreeft).
