venusmattersIn a bold move honoring the divine feminine, Pope Francis has declared the memorial to Mary Magdalene on July 22nd an annual feast day--a celebration which was, up till now, reserved for the male apostles in the Catholic Church. The deeper significance here is an invitation to all humans everywhere to see women as equal to men, respecting and honoring everyone as a child of God. In the ancient fragment of the Gospel of Mary it is said Christ loved Mary Magdalene the most, and it's possible he even claimed her as his wife. But since the early church leaders decided to enforce an all-male priesthood built on celibacy, the status of women, and indeed sexuality itself, have been institutionally and practically denigrated. As we rise to the challenge of balancing our inner feminine and masculine energies, respecting people who claim their unique place on the gender spectrum--from gay to trans to bi-sexual to hetero--humanity is awakening to a profound power: the power to truly and freely love ourselves and each other. While there is still quite a way to go in transforming religious discrimination against women (and sexuality), it is heart warming and encouraging to see the Catholic Church correcting course at this time. Happy Sunday! ✨🌟💛💚💙💜💞❤️💫 #keepdancing #keepkissing

- venusmattersIn a tragic synchronicity, the pope announced this important reframe of Mary Magdalene on the same day as the Orlando shootings. It is past time for all the world's religions to denounce their homophobic and sexist discriminations, which often actually appear in their sacred texts. It is time to foster a true and abiding respect for women, men and everyone on the sex/gender spectrum.
