Editor’s Note: As Pope Pius XII is gradually being exonerated of any wrongdoing or even an alleged “callous disregard” for the plight of the Jews during the Nazi occupation of Europe, he still remains the unlikely hero of extremist proponents of so-called “natural” birth control in what’s left of the Catholic Church since Vatican II. This is so because of a 1951 address to the Italian midwives in which the Holy Father allowed for grave circumstances which might justify rare and limited use of natural means to regulate births over and above periodic abstinence. The exaggeration of Pius’s position ever since, cited in all too many NFP courses, constitutes a gross injustice to the memory of the late, great pontiff.
We are devastated by the news of the sudden passing of our old friend and ally, Anthony S. Fraser, who died yesterday morning, August 28 (Feast of St. Augustine), of apparent heart failure.

Readers of The Remnant will immediately recognize the name Anthony Fraser as the indefatigable editor of Apropos—the UK’s premier traditional Catholic magazine. Of course, Tony is also the son of the late, great Hamish Fraser—an early pioneer of the traditional Catholic movement as well as a close friend and collaborator of the founder of The Remnant, Walter L. Matt (RIP). His Approaches magazine is generally considered Europe’s traditionalist magazine of record during the turbulent years following Vatican II.

Using a clip from the 1950 film, "Cheaper By the Dozen", Michael Matt shows how yesterday's liberals are today's conservatives. Question: Are Catholic couples who leave family size up to God really "bad stewards"?
