OK. Another subject I have been meaning to write about. NFP is a beautiful thing, and it helps married couples understand themselves and promotes temperance as well as periodic chastity. That is terrific. Where I quibble with is this idea of “planned” or “unplanned” pregnancy. This intimates that we are not following God’s will. to be trite, there is no “i” or “me” in God. Children are a gift from God, conceived out of the love of a man and woman for each other in cooperation with God.
Does this mean that I am promoting that everyone have 10 children? No. But humans simply are not that efficient. We are not rabbits.
There is really no great or bad time for children. That is why it is a perfect environment for us to turn ourselves over to God’s will.
