A question to St. Josemaría Escrivá:
“Father, what is your advice to a newlywed couple seeking holiness?”
“First, love each other very much, in accordance with God’s law. Second, don’t be afraid of life; love each other’s defects as long as they don’t offend God; and, for the wife: don’t neglect the way you look, because you’re no longer your own! You’ve been told, and you know it’s true, that you belong to your husband, and he belongs to you. Don’t let anyone steal him from you!
He is a soul who should go to Heaven with you, and what’s more, who should give real Christian quality, and human quality, to the children God sends you. Pray together. Not a lot, but a little every day. When you forget, he can remind you, and when he forgets, you remind him. Don’t scold him when he does something wrong, and don’t nag.”
-St. Josemaría, Colegio Tabancura, Chile, July 1974

Marriage derives from the Latin maritare, “to join together. It relates to another Latin word, mas, which means “male.” Wed comes ultimately from an Indo-European root for “pledge.” Matrimony stems from the Latin roots for “the condition of motherhood.”

“When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more noble her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women.” -Venerable Fulton J. Sheen, Life Is Worth Living

“Fatherhood is a vocation in God’s service, to be not held lightly or frivolously, but with the serious determination of serious men.”

A CATHOLIC FAMILY’S HANDBOOK
“By their very nature, the institution of matrimony itself and conjugal love are ordained for the procreation and education of children, and find in them their ultimate crown.”
-Second Vatican Council

The pro-choice movement which led to reduction in family size has resulted in more of them and less of us.
Even Muslims are not pro-choice, so it sickens me when i hear Catholics say they are pro-choice.Meanwhile, muslims are having large families, marrying christian women and having more babies, recruiting converts and having more and more babies.I urge fellow Catholics, discern well, marry and raise many godly children. Be fruitful and multiply

From what I have seen, these are usually the pro-choice Catholic feminists.
