Friends, Readers… I would be remiss if I did not link to this article (http://www.crisismagazine.com/2013/fecundaphobia-on-the-fear-of-large-families) on the common phenomenon of the strange comments and judgements to which we expose ourselves by having families open to life. But, I would also like to point out that this article was published in Crisis Magazine. I remember when my mom was trying to help finance this publication as it got off the ground. Now it is solely online, not available in hard copy format. I am a huge fan of First Things and Magnifikid, but are their other Catholic publications that you have delivered to your door, or I am I just a dinosaur and must I resolve to have some sort of electronic thing feed me articles from great Catholic blogs? I sort of like being exposed to the varied articles in a strong conservative (not necessarily Catholic, as First Things is not) publication that I would not have otherwise read. Talk to me.
Also, in honor of All Saints’ Day, I would like to hear a sentence on your favorite saint if you have a moment. Mine is Saint Thomas More because of his commitment in the face of public scorn and his scholarship. Favorite quote: “We cannot go to heaven in featherbeds.”
