The big question is HOW? How did all those children learn to be so generous and pure in their faith? Is it because they have modest means?

I know people will say "from the example of the parents," etc. But what Catholic parents today need is guidance with specific methods, not mere generalities.

Do we have another Louis and Zelie Martin in our midst?

Many thanks for this very edifying posting Adfero. From some of their websites in Spanish, it looks like I'VE have a great appreciation of Cornelio Fabro, one of the stalwarts of the "Roman School" prior to the Council, of which the most well known was Cardinal Ottaviani, so I think they look like a good group. Two of Prof. Robert Miola's daughters are also sisters in the women's order, the SSVM.

just imagine if all 15 kids go on to have 15 each and they, 15 more. that's over 3000 Catholics. if every family did that we'd soon take the culture back from shear numbers.

just saying guys.... we don't actually need many priests to service the corpses in the pews who will write letters to the bishop if you dare preach on gay marriage or contraception. we need the laity to get it together.

I think many IVE priests and religious come from such families. I think the IVE is by and large a good group. It is true they are disciples of Fr Cornelio Fabro's Thomism. My only wish would be that they embrace liturgical tradition rather than minimalism.

This post is NOT about the IVE, clearly. It's about bug families and trusting in God's Will as patents. Please stick to the topic.

I commend this family's courage and pray daily for a restoration of traditional Catholic families. We need such families for a restoration of Christian Civilization and proliferation of good and holy vocations.
