They're not wretches

But I think it would be really interesting if we could swamp these women with the kind of essays on being a young Catholic woman that I doubt they are looking for- and maybe they don't realize exist.

The most telling line: "There were Catholic dinners in Harvard Square, Buddhist meditation in the house on Broadway, the proclamation of The Vagina Monologues in Andover Chapel, lots of laughter, and many cups of tea. We built community, and it was good."

Please, ladies, write!

One more classic note: "Our outreach for this project is intentionally grassroots. For this reason, we are relying on people like you to help spread the word. "

It's intentionally grassroots because they think they will get the kind of essays they want that way! This is what we call a "self-selected group" i.e. not truly representative of anything at all.

Is it super wretched that this kind of thing energizes me?

I'll be working on it, though I am not a wretch :)

I think those young women have a great idea, and it will be especially good if young Catholic women like you, earthie, and your fellow wretches submit your experiences--I think it could edify these other young women in their faith.
