So great was his impact on his contemporaries that the gospels of Matthew and Luke employ the birth oracle, a popular OT form used for announcing the birth of a savior, to describe the circumstances of his birth.

terror in Mumbai

27th November 2008

Astrid, thanks for your new journal entries. Don't you think it is better to add your new post yourself? You can add it as a new blog, perhaps call it Mumbai Terror Aftermath or something to connect it with your first post. If I add it myself, my picture and my name will appear with it.

Astrid, thanks for agreeing to share your reflections with the group. Why don't you post the article yourself. Click on forum in the upper menu bar, then in the forum page, click on "Add Discussion" and then paste your article. I hope you'll do this and also send the article to ecclesiaofwomen@yahoogroups.com. One reason I can't do this for you is I'm using a computer that can't open your attachment. Of course it really is better for you to be the one making the post.

Hi Astrid. Welcome back and it's good to see your picture this time. This site is open to anyone interested in Asian Catholic Women's Theology so do invite people you think might be interested. If we're to make this site useful and lively, we also need to have articles posted and discussions started. I know we're busy with preparations for EWA 4 but just in case you have something you can post for discussion, please do upload it here. You can post it as a blog or as a discussion (go to forum in the menu)
