Vatican Radio interviewed Thomas Cardinal Collins this past Monday on the importance of the family. The cardinal outlined the various pastoral opportunities that the archdiocese of Toronto offers. He also referenced Pope Paul's encyclical Humanae Vitae and the accuracy of its prophecies. The Cardinal drew our attention to the the many accurate predictions that the Pope made for the future of an eroticized society that removed sexuality from life. Refering to the accuracy of Pope Paul, the Cardinal was quoted as saying: "It's really quite amazing".
Key predictions by Pope Paul included: the sexual objectification and degradation of women, the growth of pornography and general licentiousness, the growth of selfishness, and the dangers of the State interference in the life and role of the family.
