With the furor raging over the question of gender equality (identity), it might be time for EVERYONE to visit St. John Paul II's, Apostolic Letter regarding the dignity of women, Mulieris Dignitatem .
The crusade for complete equality has taken a seriously convoluted turn. Here (in my opinion) are the irrefutable facts in the order as I see them: 1)Man and Woman are both human beings; 2)Man and Woman are unique unto their own sex; 3)Man and Woman complement each other; 4)Man and Woman can form a bond with each other which allows them to be able to unite together as one couple; this natural, complimentary bond completes the Human equation; 5) the answer to the human equation is New Life.
Therefore it follows that; Man and Woman NEED each other; Man and Woman need to respect each other for their uniqueness which allows them to ‘complete ‘ each other ; and finally, Man and Woman will cease to exist without each other.
This concept is generally mocked in a secular driven world. Therefore I am posting the message below from St John Paul II.
From Mulieris Dignitatem (1988), no. 18
"Parenthood - even though it belongs to both man and woman - is realised much more fully in the woman, especially in the prenatal period. It is the woman who 'pays' directly for this shared generation, which literally absorbs the energies of her body and soul. It is therefore necessary that the man be fully aware that in their shared programme of parenthood he owes a special debt to the woman."
And I shall add a quote from Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen :
“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. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women.”
Final thought from me: Is their any information available about Gender Differences?
