To the image of God




"The sometimes God-like status of Mary (always officially denied in Roman Catholicism, of course) may be, as Simone de Beauvoir suggests, a remnant of the ancient image of the Mother Goddess, enchained and subordinated in Christianity, as the "Mother of God." Yet, if it is a leftover, it may also be a foretelling image, pointing to the future becoming of women "to the image of God." ~Mary Daly, Beyond God the Father
