Archbishop Fulton Sheen, What a wise man he was!

"To a great extent the level of any civilization is the level of its womanhood. When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more 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."
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

What amazing words to ponder today. Let us women elevate that "level of womanhood" within our sublime roles as wife and mother which will in turn aspire our men, all the while also be a light to the world!

God bless your day!
