Media and popular culture promote gender confusion. As Catholics, we know that God created us male and female for a reason: our bodies, psyches, and biochemistry differ because our vocations differ. Only by rediscovering our identity as either male or female can we discover the gift of our lives and the genuine happiness that comes from living according to either the masculine or the feminine mode of loving.
Sister Jane Dominic Laurel, O.P., is a member of the Saint Cecilia Congregation of Dominican Sisters of Nashville, Tennessee. She holds a Doctorate in Sacred Theology from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome, Italy, and is an Assistant Professor of Theology at Aquinas College in Nashville. Sister has been active in her community’s teaching apostolate for over fifteen years and assists with the theological formation of the newest members of her religious congregation. In addition to contributing articles to several Catholic journals and magazines, including L’Osservatore Romano, Sister has also appeared on EWTN, served as Spiritual Promoter for the Third Order Dominicans, and presented on topics related to theology, religious life, and marriage and family, speaking at various conferences, as well as to parenting groups, university students, religious women, priests, and seminarians. Among her audiences have been students of the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas, the North American College, Loyola Chicago, Vanderbilt University, Franciscan University of Steubenville, St. Mary’s College, and the University of Notre Dame.
