No doubt this is a tremendous challenge today; but not to do anything would be to play willingly into the Enemy’s hands."
"Marriage forms the bedrock on which is built a loving family and home; and a great home is non-negotiable for the upbringing of great souls who will later mature and contribute richly to the spectrums of human society."
