Graglia against Feminism: 16

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

From Domestic Tranquility, p192
It is a man's acknowledgment of female preciousness that gives a feminine woman power over him and makes her equal to him. Divesting her of that preciousness in pursuit of contemporary feminism's vision of sexual equivalence has left women pathetic and vulnerable, like raped female prisoners of war and the nursing mothers that our society (in what we can hope will be the nadir of our descent into decadence) sent off to serve in the Persian Gulf War. How many of our men, one must wonder, really want to be part of a society that treats its women in this fashion?

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
