you readjust the figures and tell me the pecentage.
I do respect St. Josemaria Escriva; he was certainly far holier while on earth than I am now, and it is for that reason that I am willing to give him *personally *the benefit of the doubt.
On the other hand, accepting or even tolerating the notion *itself *that it may be just or accurate to claim that women may be responsible for 80% of their husbands’ infidelities is asinine and perverse. To accept or tolerate this notion simply because a holy man happened to say it at some point is sort of a reverse genetic fallacy.
i thought it is generally accepted that everything has a cause, in his days as a priest this may be very true his is talking from personal experience. He isnt just making some rules.
More importantly, few sentiments so reek of “secular” thinking as that suggestion. Isn’t the love of a husband and wife to be an icon of the love between Christ and His Church? Our Lord loves us and seeks our good even when we’re at our most foul.
be careful you are walking on the air. He didnt deny anything, im sure if you asked him the same question he will answer in the affirmative. He didnt justify it he gave factors that he thinks plays a role. Lost of hope causes 90% of violence, this isnt a justification, im simply identifying factors that i believe are responsible.
Any husband with an ounce of virtue should strive to do likewise at all times and not make excuses. If one day I am ever blessed to be a husband, I hope I will love my wife with great devotion and fidelity all my life.
the saint didnt say otherwise. A husband should love at all times, this doesnt even touch his point. It seems you think he is giving the husband a reason to leave his wife.
(Note, I am not talking about always feeling happy or pleased with one’s spouse. Obviously that would be ridiculous and unrealistic. Feelings come and go. I am talking about what actions we choose, with our will.)
and a marriage becomes almost impossible when it has no joy.
