(and some interesting articles).
A relative of mine is currently in hospital, recovering from surgery. Your prayers are appreciated. I'm afraid I'm not capable of writing anything coherent at the moment, so I'll just refer you to some interesting articles and discussions instead.
Bruce Charlton in his post on immodest dress discusses warm weather immodesty and the hideous practice of extreme tattooing.
The blog called "Secular Patriarchy" has an article which deals with the reasons of the decline of marriage in the West. The author did a great job collecting statistical data on the labour force participation of married women in the USA, starting with the 1890s, which, by the way, utterly refutes the idiotic argument put forth by the feminists and some men's rights'activists that nearly all married women used to work until the 1950s when they were all suddenly locked at home by their husbands. The truth is, the labour force participation of married women grew throughout the XXth century, from 2.2% in the 1890 to nearly 30% in the 1960.
I'd also like to draw your attention to this discussion on vaccination. By some reason, this topic seems to be extremely controversial, and the anti-vaccine people are more often than not treated as heretics. Zippy Catholic provides a rather balanced view on the whole vaccine issue.
The Thinking Housewife, as usual, had some great posts. I'd especially like to recommend this one where a young woman asks advice about living traditional life.
UPDATE: My relative's condition has worsened so that she will need another operation. Please keep us in your prayers.
