“When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more noble her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her.

Even Muslims are not pro-choice, so it sickens me when i hear Catholics say they are pro-choice.Meanwhile, muslims are having large families, marrying christian women and having more babies, recruiting converts and having more and more babies.I urge fellow Catholics, discern well, marry and raise many godly children. Be fruitful and multiply
