Contracepting the parochial school out of existence

An excellent article by Father Timothy Sauppe of the St. Mary's Church in Westville, Illinois.

   You've contracepted our parochial school out of existence

The article conveys the sorrow that Father Timothy feels over this dilemma, but he knows that he has to speak the truth. Our schools are closing because Catholics simply have not had enough children to keep them going. And although he doesn't say this, I am sure that he would agree.  We have also contracepted away the next generation of priests and nuns.  So if you hear someone complaining about the lack of priests and the closing of Catholic institutions, perhaps you should ask them if they had more than the required two children to keep the Catholic faith growing.
