Recognition by the official church has confirmed what many faithful have known for a long time — that women's theology enriches the community with much-needed wisdom. The theologies of the four women Doctors of the Church — Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Avila, Thérèse of Lisieux and Hildegard of Bingen —are grounded in the Tradition, expressed in affective as well as intellectual ways, and brought to life through everyday experience. These women invite us to become “grassroots” theologians, filled with the desire to study the Tradition and give voice to our encounters with God in a complex, fragile world.
