The power that women can wield over men is great indeed. If they pursue their own selfish aims, women are Satan's slaves. If they put their charm at God's service, they are God's great allies.... "It is, above all, by means of woman that piety is first awakened and spreads its mysterious influence over society...Providence makes use to prepare the way for civilization...should she prove false to her high mission, society would perish." (Ratisbonne)

--Alice von Hildebrand, The Privilege of Being a Woman
