"Though it constitutes an indictment of our present civilization, in practical life many people, including some Catholics, may be invincibly ignorant of the malice of such practices as Birth Control, Euthanasia, and the possibility of the complete dissolution of the bond of a ratified and consummated marriage." How does such a possibility come about? This work explores the Natural law, its basic principles, and the deductions that should flow from these. How far can such ignorance extend? And more importantly what is the cure? St. Alphonsus writes: “a single bad book will be sufficient to cause the destruction of a monastery.” Pope Pius XII wrote in 1947 at the beatification of Blessed Maria Goretti: “There rises to Our lips the cry of the Saviour: 'Woe to the world because of scandals!' (Matthew 18:7). Woe to those who consciously and deliberately spread corruption-in novels, newspapers, magazines, theaters, films, in a world of immodesty!” We at St. Pius X Press are calling for a crusade of good books. We want to restore 1,000 old Catholic books to the market. We ask for your assistance and prayers. This book is a photographic reprint of the original The original has been inspected and many imperfections in the existing copy have been corrected. At Saint Pius X Press our goal is to remain faithful to the original in both photographic reproductions and in textual reproductions that are reprinted. Photographic reproductions are given a page by page inspection, whereas textual reproductions are proofread to correct any errors in reproduction.
