Graglia against Feminism: 11

A continuing series; see here for the introduction, and here for more on feminism in the Catholic Church in the UK.

From Domestic Tranquility, p152.
...a woman's one-sided economic dependency is the most serious flaw in her traditional role. It constitutes a risk that was once--and again could be--ameliorated by divorce laws that, unlike our present no-fault laws, are designed to protect home-makers and their children. With the disingenuity that pervades their arguments, contemporary feminists now indict no-fault divorce laws for causing women's insecurity within marriage, citing the risk of divorce as the reason women must abandon their traditional role in favor of career pursuits. Yet enactment of these very laws was probably the single most important tool the women's movement employed to destroy the viability of women's traditional role by eroding the institutional supports that had insulated women from the hazards of of their marital economic dependency.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
