    I know that I tend to go astray a little bit of the point, but, this has something to do with this matter. I would like to share Dom Orione’s thinking about the anti-christian behavior of women:

    “In the day when woman, delivered (freed) from all we call their slavery and becoming a mother according to their pleasure, wife without a husband, without any duty to anyone that day the society will collapse into anarchy astonishingly, more than collapsed by Bolshevism in Russia. ”

    “O dia em que a mulher, libertada de tudo aquilo que chamamos a sua escravidão, se tornar mãe segundo seu prazer, esposa sem marido, sem nenhum dever para quem quer que seja, nesse dia a sociedade desmoronará espantosamente para a anarquia, mais do que desmoronou na Rússia pelo bolchevismo.”

    Dear Friars, if you deem appropriate I can rewrite my comments, deleting the name of that Feminist group. I was thinking and perhaps its mention could be ocasion of sin for other people.

    My first comment rewritten.

    Father, what so a beautiful and touching homily! I love it!

    In the beginning of the homily, you told a litte bit of St. Collete’s life and said she became a anchoress, because she was very beautiful and didn’t want to be cause of sin for herself or for other. So I started thinking about women’s atitude today.

    For exemple, the Feminists say promoting women rights through obscene acts as well wearing obscenes costumes/clothing. That a big incoherence because actually they are promoting the degradation of women. And also promoting depravation in the society.

    Unfortunately the most of women today has a feminist mentality. And that has become a very destructive power against society.

    Some time ago, read a prophey of Dom Orione (St. Luis Alberione), a founder priest, that he said that feminism would become more destructive to society than communism!
