At this Wednesday's audience, the Holy Father continues his necessary efforts at damage control. He says "having more children cannot be automatically viewed as an irresponsible choice." His Holiness praised, at length, large families and criticized the selfishness of a conscious decision not to have children. This is good, of course, but pardon the mixed metaphor when I observe that the rabbit is out of the barn on this one.
Regina Familiae, ora pro nobis!
