Why Did Moses’ Face Shine?

Why Did Moses’ Face Shine?

Moses went up Mount Sinai to speak with God. When he came down the mountain, his face was brilliant, literally shining. It was so dazzling, in fact, that when the Israelites saw it, they were so terrified, that Moses had to veil his face.

Strong Woman

Strong Woman

The other day I read a strange question. The question was: Is the Virgin Mary a strong woman, or a feminine woman? The answer, of course, is YES! Both! Mary is the very model of femininity, and a paragon of strength!
