Noel and Sue Radford, parents to 22 children

(And you thought you were busy!)

Baby #22 to be born in four weeks. British online The Sun article (ridiculously offensive ad alert):

Lots of great photos but no real information. Are they Catholic? Do they homeschool?

Yesterday morning I researched a bit. I don't think they're Catholic, but no article said anything regarding their faith or lack thereof specifically. Their first pregnancy was when she was 14. They married four years later, with the impending birth of their second child. Their two eldest have moved out and at least one has children, as they now have five grandchildren. He apparently had a vasectomy sometime in the early 00s, reversed a bit afterward successfully. Testing my memory here, but wasn't Saint Catherine of Siena the 23rd of 26(29?) children? anyway, like you, I am impressed by even the idea of 22 kids. Wow.
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the most precious blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said Throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory. Amen.

Yes, St. Catherine of Siena, my thoughts went to her as well...How I love babies. I pray all her babies make it to heaven as well as her, her husband and extended family.

What the hell? I've never seen that before, Augustinian. It's in very bad taste.

Yeah, you're right. I'm sorry, mea culpa
