May the Goddess Guard Her. May She Find Her Way to the Summerlands. May Her Friends and Family Know Peace.

Feminist writer and thealogian Carol P. Christ has slipped through the veils. The Girl God blog has a lovely obituary for her.

It’s a little difficult to express now what Christ’s works meant to so many women back in the “early days” of the modern Pagan renaissance. Her discussions of Goddesses and Goddess worship were integral to my own growth as a Witch. Part of my daily prayer — “The breath of my body will bless and the cells of my being will sing in gratitude and reawakening” — comes from her writing.

If you’ve never read any of her books, Rebirth of the Goddess is a good place to start.

We stand on the shoulders of giants, my sisters. We stand on the shoulders of giants.

  1. I’m saddened to hear this news. Blessings to all who were touched by her work.

    I say those words also, each morning, from poet Marcia Falk’s reenvisionings of Hebrew prayers.

  2. Blessed Be.
    Love that quote. 🙂
