The home is the first school of Christian life and “a school for human enrichment.” Here one learns endurance and the joy of work, fraternal love, generous — even repeated — forgiveness, and above all divine worship in prayer and the offering of one’s life (CCC, 1657).

She is out of a successful surgery. 💕 they got all the blood out from around her heart that was complicating it’s pumping ability. Praise GOD. They found no other problem that they could see. Praise GOD. Her right *and* left ventricles are improved and stable. PRAISING GOD.

I’ll know more when I join Josh at the hospital. I’m on mom duty and it’s the hardest duality. But right now, the songs are – as always – all praise.

Someone had asked the question:
.
“The frustration caused by not being able to have children, leads, at times, to discord and misunderstanding. In your opinion, what meaning should Christian couples who are childless give to their married life?”
.
Saint Josemaria Escriva answers brilliantly. Here’s some highlights:
.
“Often God does not give children because He is asking them for something more…
There is, then, no reason for feeling they are failures…
If the married couple have interior life, they will understand that God is urging them to make their lives a generous Christian service, a different apostolate from the one they would have fulfilled with their children, but an equally marvelous one…
God, who always rewards, will fill with a deep joy those souls who have had the generous humility of not thinking of themselves.”
.
What matters is your daily living of your marriage vows— your daily “I do” to your spouse and to God.
.
Marriage is a vocation, a call from God, and “the vocation to love is in fact a vocation to the gift of self, and this is a possibility that no physical condition can prevent.” -Pope B-16
.
“…a different apostolate… but an equally marvelous one.”
.
Marriage is a path to holiness. And guess what? Everyone’s path is going to be unique.

Dear French PM Macron…..
My name is Amy. I would like you to know a little about me. I have 8 children. I chose to have more, but lost four to miscarriage. I also have a college degree, just lacking about 10 hours towards my Masters. I taught at an inner city child care facility where we helped single mothers get affordable child care while they looked for work. I also worked as a 5th grade teacher and a 2nd grade teacher with four children of my own. I now co-chair a Catholic women’s conference the last four years that has served 500+ women each year. This is my family. My 8 living children. My husband of 22 years. Some “educated women” can AND DO choose to have large families. Let’s keep in mind not everyone fits in the box others would like to create for them.

French President Macron is receiving heavy backlash after an insult to mothers of large families, he was quoted saying, “present me the woman who decided, being perfectly educated, to have seven, eight or nine children.”
.
A message from @onehailmaryatatime:
“President Macron –
My education from St. Mary’s college and the University of Notre Dame taught me sexual reproduction is a good thing.
So I took that to heart and have been blessed with 6 children.”
.
As stated by @catholicnewsagency:
“Macron himself does not have any children, but his wife has three children from her first marriage.
The Macrons met when the future French president was 15 years old, his future wife Brigitte Trogneux was his teacher.”

His Eminence, Raymond Cardinal Leo Burke, shares the importance of devotionals for Catholic families and explains the role they played for him in his childhood. He reminisces about his family’s devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and how they used to set up a table with flowers for Mary during the month of May. This extended faith life taught him from a young age that the family is “a little church.” He encourages families, especially young families, to create this kind of environment for their children.

Parents are the principal and first educators of their children. In this sense the fundamental task of marriage and family is to be at the service of life (CCC, 1653).
.
The Christian home is the place where children receive the first proclamation of the faith. For this reason the family home is rightly called “the domestic church,” a community of grace and prayer, a school of human virtues and of Christian charity (CCC, 1666).
.
The importance of the family for the life and well-being of society entails a particular responsibility for society to support and strengthen marriage and the family. Civil authority should consider it a grave duty “to acknowledge the true nature of marriage and the family, to protect and foster them, to safeguard public morality, and promote domestic prosperity” (CCC, 2210).
