Something to ponder....

"Another effect that gives cause for alarm is that a man who grows accustomed to the use of contraceptive methods may forget the reverence due to a woman, and, disregarding her physical and emotional equilibrium, reduce her to being a mere instrument for the satisfaction of his own desires, no longer considering her as his partner whom he should surround with care and affection."

Who said that?

It seems extraordinarily prophetic, now that the ugly subculture of recent decades in Hollywood, the BBC, etc has been revealed by various women who have tales of molestation...

Click on to the Comments box to reveal who spoke so accurately over half a century ago.

And give him honour: he was bitterly attacked and hounded at the time, notably by people who should have been his staunchest allies.

It was Pope Paul VI - now deservedly honoured as Blessed Paul VI. He gave us Humanae Vitae, speaking out with wisdom and great courage.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan recently quoted the words that I have also reproduced on my Blog, and noted how prophetic they were.

Thank God for Blessed Paul VI

Events have proved him right. What looked like an unproblematic technical fix to the problem of unwanted pregnancy has blown up in our faces, producing a tide of pornography, divorce, and skewing the population so there aren't enough young to look after the old. It hasn't even solved the problem of unwanted pregnancies, as the abortion statistics show.
