- Have Krum Finger seen it? - He only cares about books.

It's not good. There is so much I can not.

So Danielle started art school. She was happy.

Days turned into weeks, and weeks turned into years.

Antonia sowed and Danielle painted, the fields were green and yellow.

Done? Drag.



I want to have children.

How did you get such thoughts?


A man, then? Should not you have a husband, too?

No. I do not think so.

It only becomes difficult if we take someone from the village.

Farmers are just sner-

- and they do not look further than the next korumpa.

Take a deep breath.

Through the nose! In a few months we will go to standard

- and where we find the father of your child.

What is this?

There seems to be a home for fallen women.

Will they ever be able to get up? We go.

Come in. Come and sit.

Come and sit.

For my part, I can not imagine anything better than being pregnant.

This is my second and, believe me:

It's not mating act that is important, and not the child.

It is very wearing and giving birth. That's wonderful.

We are looking for ...

- ...a man. - A man? Who is not?

A man who can ...

... impregnate me. There is a child, I want-not a man.

He does not know.

As they say:
What you do not know can not hurt you.

I'll do it.


Stylish motorcycle!

What He supports himself on faith?

- Does he have good genes? - We are related.

One more time.

- Did you see the stars? - No. Should it?

- It learns to help ... - It is probably not well.

- I'm starving. - It's a good sign.

We are a fertile offspring.

Thanks. And do not hesitate if you need my help.

- Come on. - This is gonna be good.

He would do well even if he was not genuine.

A kind of corruption that infects us all.

For that warns us of Peter, the rock on which the Church is founded on:

For those who allow themselves to be guided by the carnal begren-

-and who despise authority.

Jews kingdom went under because of the accursed Jezebel and a daughter.

Even more shame is that these varelser-

- are women. They should be a fredme-

-i subjection and obedience

- and teach their daughters to live in chastity.

May they reverse the signal

- so that they avoid being thrown into hell fire on Judgment Day!

Base realized that there was only one solution: blackmail.

Jesus, Maria, Josef...

And Jesus said to them:

"He who is without sin, let him throw the first stone."

And just as they had to do, we should examine our conscience

- before we sit in judgment of others.

Let us also remember that salvation came into the world through a woman.

To her, asking no vain for help and protection.

Let us remember the text on one of our female saints days:
