Ecclesia of Women in Asia

Forum of Asian Catholic Women Theologians

I am a woman in search of my roots
Finding my ground in the call for integration of my mind body and spirit
I left the comfortable confines of Christian structures and churches
I ventured far out of the institution
I was called by Christ--- "duc in altum"
Go out into the deep.
Spirit is urging me to be
I am Asian with many bloods from east and west
Flowing in my veins
And I am Tagalog
I feel the Spirit's call rooting me in a tradition of harmony
Healing my soul, affirming my being.
Babaylan ako.
I am a Babaylan...
I am reclaiming the deep presence of God/ESS in my culture
Baylan... Bai...lan.
Embracing my ground and roots
Heal me.
Blessed be.
