A quote for a Tuesday

“…it is no wonder that the women were first at the Cradle and last at the Cross. [Jesus was] a prophet and teacher who never nagged at them, never flattered or coaxed or patronized…who rebuked without querulousness and praised without condescension; who took their questions and arguments seriously; who never mapped out their sphere for them; who never urged them to be feminine or jeered at them for being female…”
