She was one of my greatest teachers - opening my mind and heart to what luminosity lies in the heart of all of us. To be sure, my world was rocked! I was never the same after being taught by Mary. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I met you through friends, read all of your writing, sat in the back of your classes at BC while I was in BC/SOM. My way of thinking was forever transformed by your brilliance. What I most enjoy is laughter even in the midst of insanity.
Thank you! Linda Belmont,MA

O Mary! O Emily! O Linda! O all those sisters who were in Mary's class with me in l971-3 at Boston College! And then I was back again in the 1980s, even more amazed at the luminosity of this woman--surely the most brilliant thealogian of the 20th century. I can't say she made my life any easier.
But she gave me the courage to BE.
And I hope to be part of her Memorial
Service in the Spring.

Oh Mary,

How can I thank you enough...I lived my life in darkness, knowing...feeling the truth...without words to express what I saw all around me...than your book came to me in a syncronistic wave of awakening...my body and soul shook with brilliant colorful waves of truth...How I miss you my true Sister...Voyage on...

Mary Daly, you were the greatest Nag-Gnostic of them all, and I love you for teaching me the meaning of Ontological Courage and Be-ing.

Our community used her inspiration to create cronings, a ritual which has spread all over the world now.

Thank you, Mary.

Mary,

It is just a lot for me to process your life and death. That is why I could not come here earlier to post this. But as you and I continued our conversation over 16 years mostly over the phone with some occasional meetings up until a few months ago, our conversation will go on. Anyhow, our connection is inter-galatic beyond expression.

I will let others know what you meant to me. I know you understood what my translation of your first two books in Korean meant to me, you, and all others.

Rest now and stay with us the way you wanted to show us.

Much love and gratitude,
Hye Sook from Upland, CA

P.S. If Xochitl Alvizo reads this post, please contact me at magoism@gmail.com. Mary mentioned your name to me on several different occasions till her last months. I will appreciate it very much to have a conversation with you, Helen Hye-Sook Hwang.

Dr. Mary Daly was an original thinker and champion for women. She shook up the patriachal establishment and made many very uncomfortable. I say, "Good for her!" Any institution that marginalizes women and does not treat all people with equality deserves to be and must be challenged. Thankfully, her voice is not stopped...it lives on in her writings. May she rest in peace.

I felt honored, albeit tested, as a male student of Dr. Daly in 1973. My most compelling recollection of this class was our discussion of the concept that the verb "to be" can be spoken in the active voice. I have carried this inspiration as a researcher and teacher in medical science and I have worked to pass it along as a parent to my children. Dr. Daly surely IS to her students an active voice!

We had a discussion group in New Zealand in the late 70's and we read Beyond... and then one of the group brought back Gyn/Ecology from the US after a trip. I'll never forget those books and those women.
Never was anyone like her and never will be.
After a Life fighting and separation; in Death you now Flow with Everything. You may Rest and BE at Peace now
