"Humanae Vitae" Priests

Inspired by the work of a Benedictine monk, Fr. Paul Marx, O.S.B.

From their website
email newsletter dedicated to a deeper analysis of the teaching of the Church on birth control and its many manifestations. From now until July 25th, 2008, the anniversary of the encyclical, HLI [“Human Life International”] will send to all interested priests, deacons and seminarians this e-newsletter called Humanae Vitae Priests. It is dedicated to forming in us the “mind of Christ” concerning the Church’s teaching and is meant to fortify our souls in our duty as priests to give the full teaching of Christ to our people. My good friend, John Mallon, a long-standing champion of Humanae Vitae, will edit this publication and help me provide for you many gifts in this one publication:
= commentaries on the cultural degradation generated by contraception
= homily helps for preaching on birth control
= technical information about the abortifacient dimension of contraception
= resources for promoting natural family planning among your people
= feature-length articles by the best minds exploring the beauty of Humanae Vitae
= straight-talk regarding priestly dissent on this issue and how it leads to loss of souls, and finally
= a manifesto for priests and deacons to sign to demonstrate that we will never be silent about this issue

Fr. S.,

Please inculcate the proper attitude among couples with whom you work. NFP can be just as contraceptive as anything else if the approach/understanding is wrong.

Definitely address the situation when one spouse feels there is grave reason to wait and the other does not.

Thank you.
