After rising up immersed in feminism and a dissident parish
that left her deeply sad, Melody Lyons discovered reality and therapeutic
within the fullness of Christ’s educating on man and girl. But after
many years of not contemplating herself a feminist, she began
describing herself as a “Catholic feminist” with a purpose to discover widespread
floor with secular ladies.

Melody has not too long ago realized that this technique is
counterproductive. What’s worse, right this moment’s “Catholic feminism”,
ostensibly designed to be appropriate with the religion, is beginning to
look eerily comparable the dissident outdated guard she grew up with.

Melody joins the present to debate her conversion, the deviant
spirituality of feminism, and the renewed recognition of dissidents
from many years previous amongst younger, feminine Catholic
“influencers”. 

She additionally explains how she discovered freedom in Pope St. John Paul
II’s writings on ladies, and the way his scant rhetorical references to
“true feminism” have been misinterpreted to justify the creation of
a motion extra rooted in secular pondering than in Christ.

Melody’s core message: The Gospel is ample.
