Tips to Pastoral Counselling
Below are a couple of dozen short tips to Pastoral Counselling that might be useful for you!

Do I Really Wish I Were Born a Man?

In my mother’s day, the question of a woman wishing to be like a man did not surface. Today, with opportunities opening up for women to be on par with men in society and vocations, some of my fellow women have become confused.

Why do we have to bear the brunt of bearing and nursing children whereas men are left to fulfill their wide choice of ambitions in the usual ways? I want to be free like them and yet I don’t really want to be them. I want to receive the same pay but not the insensitive comments of men’s talk. I want to be independent but I also want to nurse my children with tender kindness. Caught in-between such good things, Lord, how shall I choose?

“Each to her own, My daughter, each to her own be faithful. My gift for women like you is the feeling and tenderness that embraces not only your children but the rest of mankind. Use whatever gifts I give to you specifically, use them faithfully and there will well up from within you a sense of My joy and contentment. There will be nothing to hide, nothing to bury when we meet again.”
