NFP /follow up QUESTION from christina May 1, 2000 John,
My question was not why does the Catholic Church approve of NFP. I was trying to get a better understanding of what serious reason for spacing babies and limiting family size would. We both agree that NFP is moral when used the way it is intended.
What I want to know if is it moral and sufficiently serious a reason for me to limit my family to two children because I want to be able to afford to send them to private school, take vacations, shop at regular stores rather than thrift stores, and things like that.
ANSWER by Mr. John Miskell on May 1, 2000 Dear Christina,
I'm not a moral theologian, so while the reasons you cite may seem frivolous to me, the answer is best addressed by your pastor, spiritual advisor or confessor.
