With All Her Mind: An Interview with Rachel Bulman

Bishop Robert Barron

September 12, 2022


Word on Fire Fellow and contributor to With All Her Mind, Haley Stewart, sits down with editor Rachel Bulman to discuss the intellectual life from the perspective of Catholic femininity and this groundbreaking new book.

About With All Her Mind: A Call to the Intellectual Life:

“The feminine genius,” a term coined by Pope St. John Paul II, has become something of a buzzword in the Catholic world. But has the fullness of femininity been exhausted? This collection of sixteen essays, written by Catholic women of diverse backgrounds and vocations, is a call to pursue what is too often excluded from our picture of femininity: the intellectual life.

Following Mary, the “Seat of Wisdom,” who “treasured” the words of the shepherds and “pondered them in her heart,” With All Her Mind shows how the feminine genius involves both affectivity and active intellectual engagement. Full of practical advice and personal testimonies and featuring a foreword by celebrated scholar Tracey Rowland, this collection opens readers to the endlessly unique ways for a woman to follow the first and greatest commandment: to love the Lord with all her soul, with all her heart, and with all her mind.
