MCFARLAND -- When talking about modesty, it is important to note that the body is not a bad thing, said Christine King, the founder of "Pure Freedom."

Rather, when we keep our bodies modest -- both in fashion and body language -- we can draw people to ourselves through a focal point that highlights our dignity and value as human beings.

King, a chastity and abstinence speaker from Neenah, Wis., spoke on November 12 to a small group of mostly parents -- many of them mothers, but also a few fathers -- at an event held at Christ the King Parish, McFarland, and sponsored by the diocesan Office of Evangelization and Catechesis.

The Rural Life Office of the Diocese of Madison began receiving field condition updates from our Diocesan Rural Life Network members throughout the month of May and early June, and the reports were quite startling.

The 2007-08 record snow fall amounts of 100 inches across our 11 counties was having an immediate negative impact on agriculture. Days of limited sun and near record low temperatures for May continued, covering the fields with water from snow melt that the soil could not absorb.

Rains start coming in torrents

Then towards the last week of May and first week of June the rains started. The Rural Life Office began to receive numerous reports from the Rural Life Network members and the news was anything but positive. While driving from Mass in Monroe (Green County) on Sunday, June 8, I noticed huge rivulets of soil, containing the tiny late corn plants, flowing down the sides of the hills in all directions. The rain was coming in torrents across our entire area and the ground seemed to not be able to take in anymore.
