Season 6 | Episode 96: Persistence in Advent with Kat Armas
Show Notes

Have you ever considered that Jesus is who he is because of a woman? Co-hosts Patricia Taylor and Kayla Craig talk with writer Kat Armas about this bigger, expansive, abuelita faith—one that persists, resists, and survives.

In this episode, we:

  • Discuss the influence of Kat’s Roman Catholic upbringing on having a tangible and embodied view of Mother Mary
  • Talk about Julian of Norwich’s image of Jesus as mother as well as Jesus being raised by a mother and being mothered himself
  • Marvel at how marginalized women can contain the most sacred and most holy
  • Define what abuelita theology means and how it’s birthed through our lived experiences
  • Go over the difference between persistence and resistance and where they can meet and overlap on the journey to justice
  • Ask who is in our spiritual genealogies and who are the theologians in our lives who wouldn’t be considered one by the dominant culture
  • Wonder what are the places where we haven’t been trained to experience God 

Join us for this stirring conversation about what a lived theology looks like from the perspective of being a woman. We hope that it enriches your experience of the Advent season.
