Got to have babies

Got to have babies

Pope Benedict today encouraged Catholics to have more babies. I showed it to Melanie today. I told her it’s our duty as a Catholic couple.

Linking his remarks on the psalm to the modern-day world situation, he lamented that post_type>

I keep trying to talk Jeanne into number six.  She keeps lecturing me on self control.

“I told her it’s our duty as a Catholic couple.”

Now there’s a line I never thought of using, Dom, you sly dog! Seriously, though, we expected to see at least two or three little Bettinelli’s to be running around loose within a few years anyway.

My mom and dad had four of us. We all fit into a little ranch starter home with three bedrooms and one bath. It pays off in the present, as Dad has MS, and doesn’t have to go to a nursing home because Mom and my siblings insist on taking care of him themselves.

As the Gaels say: “Bairns are a blessin.’”

I’ll be delivering our 8th on Sept 7th. The first few are tough, when they are all challenging toddlers but once you get past that it’s all gravy in terms of entertainment value alone! Personally I’m hoping for an even dozen- right now the kids are 15, 14, 12, 10, 7, 3, 20 months (one is adopted and sadly we lost 2). I’m thinking in terms of dynasty!

Good point, Mary. If there is one way that a couple can absolutely change the world: it is to have children and plenty of them. It deals a major blow against the culture of death and it is a sure irritant to modernists, liberals, athiests, socialists and their CEO – the Evil One. Besides…kids are so much fun!

Mary:

You should think about a traveling softball team while you’re at it. Good luck with number 8.

The great thing about fertile Catholic families is that those who subscribe to the culture of death don’t have kids. Over time, they de-populate themselves.

Mary, is there such a thing as aa pro-life/Catholic adoptive parent organization? In a few years, we may consider adopting especially as we are getting a late start on a family (me turning 37 in a couple months).

“The great thing about fertile Catholic families is that those who subscribe to the culture of death don different questions really. Along the Mississippi and Alabama coasts, perhaps it would be best phrased: “Should they not build within a half-mile of the ocean?” Sure, we love the ocean and we pay top dollar to be able to see it from our living rooms and our beach cottages and our hotel rooms. But is it wise, as a society, to allow it when such devastation is always one hurricane away?

New Orleans is a different case. It’s a city that should not be where it is. (See this National Geographic article I referenced in the previous entry.) And it’s presence where it is, with its attendant levees keeping Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi River from turning it back into the swamp it once was, only makes its situation worse. By preventing the normal ebb-and-flow of flood and drain that replenishes the Delta sediment eroding into the Gulf of Mexico, the barrier wetlands that could protect New Orleans are fading away.
