EWTN Catholic Q&A
Question from Leah on 11-21-2012:

Please interpret this passage. Is this related to contraception? Do I have to take this passage literally?

Thank you Father.

Answer by Fr. John Echert on 11-21-2012:

When the end comes, whether of the whole world ormournown world, such as a nation, the hardest things for parents may be to see their children suffer. But that is not a case for contraception, for their martyrdom wins them a crown in Heaven.

Thanks, Leah

Father Echert
