I saw a headline today on Canon212. “Yahoo says: More Babies Need to be Aborted to Solve America’s Diaper Shortage”
My wife and I would have loved an army of offspring. I hear it’s a very Catholic thing to do. He gave us two and they are the joy of my life. But long before I “tradded” I knew this was what God asks of couples entering marriage – to lovingly accept ALL the children He gives them. Being the 14th in my own family might have tinted my worldview here but who’s to say?
Reading that particular headline made me shudder. I say this with absolute conviction. I would lovingly take the children that others don’t want. In a world where a shortage of disposable plastic waste collection systems prompt men to suggest child murder as the solution, perhaps this petition should go into my novena to St. Rita.
Mary, Mother at Calvary, pray for us!
