LionHippo, I couldn't agree more. I have five and we were blessed. However, my brother-in-law's parents had two. When the second was born, my BIL was home from Germany on leave from the US Army. He drove his mother to hospital since his dad was a policeman who was on duty.

Why do I mention that? Because in the intervening 19 years, his mother had suffered miscarriage after miscarriage from Rh Factor problems. 

Not everyone can be blessed with lots of children.

If you don’t have a desire to see people saved, something’s not right.
A true Catholic life is one of faith, humility, charity, modesty, and prayer.
Not sitting around committing the sin of detraction against all the liberals you don’t like by yammering on and on about how much you know about Freemasons and Vatican 2.
If you want to be a true traditional Catholic, you need to be humble, and content with being hidden from the world. You need to be merciful and charitable.
In short: Imitate Christ.

You just put into words the sentiment that has been keeping my faith alive in these difficult times we find ourselves in. I’ve been working on the above, and I have been much happier and at peace for it. If anyone finds themselves constantly angry, tired, and despairing, try that formula up there ^^^
