Condoms for children

Briefing: a 'dog bites man' story but it still shocks people. What's happening in your school? Wake up!

From the Daily Mail: Teenagers as young as 13 are being offered free condoms at school without their parents' knowledge.

All 'non-faith' secondary schools in Manchester have agreed to let their nurses hand out contraceptives and give advice about sex.

And the service could 'in principle' be offered to children aged 11 and 12 - although council sources say any evidence that children of that age engaging in sexual activity would trigger an investigation.

See the full story.

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
