Feast of St. Maria Goretti

My daughter is eleven years old, and as I see her moving towards "young womanhood", I can't help but see our society as a ravenous beast waiting to devour her.  I know that sounds extreme, but innocence is so easily lost and can never be recovered.

St. Maria Goretti is a model of purity for our time and our culture, which sneers at the very word.  I found this "Modesty Pledge" on the site of the Friends of Maria Goretti.  Pass it on.
