I should have thought it's obvious: so they could do things with 
their lives in addition to producing and looking after one child 
after another after another...

What's more interesting, in the context of this thread, is how 
Catholics raised in these two famously pious nations (Ireland and 
Spain) managed to find workarounds to the clamoring condemnation of 
birth control from their supposedly virginal prelates, not to mention 
the urgings of their baby-mad genes.
