*Catechism #2366
Fecundity is a gift, an end of marriage, for conjugal love naturally tends to be fruitful. A child does not come from outside as something added on to the mutual love of the spouses, but springs from the very heart of that mutual giving, as its fruit and fulfillment. So the Church, which is “on the side of life” teaches that “it is necessary that each and every marriage act remain ordered per se to the procreation of human life.” “This particular doctrine, expounded on numerous occasions by the Magisterium, is based on the inseparable connection, established by God, which man on his own initiative may not break, between the unitive significance and the procreative significance which are both inherent to the marriage act.”

*“There will be no renewal of America without a renewal of the Catholic Church; and no renewal of the Catholic Church without renewal of the Catholic family; and no renewal of the Catholic family without a bold proclamation of the truths regarding the sacred transmission of human life” – Archbishop of Denver*
