As a very young child in Catholic school I used to recite "Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost". I couldn't help wondering where the Mother was: surely, if I am to glorify the Father, then glorify the Mother! I thought, maybe the mysterious Holy Ghost was, in some way, Mother. As I grew older I decided to resolve the matter and asked my school priest. He was a good guy, and told me that God had chosen to reveal the Godhead as Male, but he could not give me a satisfactory reason why, and with some humor considered me a "trouble-maker". In my late teens, as I looked at the world, and thought about wars and killing, it seemed to me that male biology promoted war more than female, and male was , and still is, vastly dominant in positions of authority. More women in authority would restore balance with less killing, a good and Christian thing. Now, as a retiree, I look at the history of Religion and killing seems to be a sad component ( Religious wars). Maybe, as a child, I was right. Maybe the the recitation I recited was meant to be "Glory be to the Father and to the Mother, and to the Son, a union in the Holy spirit. The Son, Jesus, a deeply individuated (Jung) and Divine person. Oh Dear, but then I would be a Heretic. No matter, Jesus, to many in his time, was a Heretic too.
