Apparently, I'm not alone out there in my thoughts regarding fertility and how true openness to life is our path to sanctity.  Helen at Castle of the Immaculate, writes compellingly about real openness to God's plan. We need to be talking about this issue; there is so much confusion and misinformation out there.  Some of the busiest people I know--mothers of many--are the ones who must tell the younger women of great gifts He has for them if only they will utter a fiat of total abandonment!
