This book, and the many beautiful books and lectures that sprang from it by the likes of Dr. Janet Smith and Chris West, has changed my life and my marriage for the better.
I LOVE the Church's teachings on marriage and the family. This book is quite possibly the most important text written on sexual morality in the last century.
P.S.- If JPII's work is a bit dense for you, get a hold of Christopher West's THEOLOGY OF THE BODY FOR BEGINNERS and his monumental commentary THEOLOGY OF THE BODY EXPLAINED. Couples should consider his book GOOD NEWS ABOUT SEX & MARRIAGE and Teens should read Jason Evert's IF YOU REALLY LOVED ME.
* "Let them first consider how easily this course of action could open wide the way for marital infidelity & a general lowering of moral standards....
* "Another effect that gives cause for alarm is that a man who grows accustomed to the use of contraceptive methods may forget the reverence due to a woman, & ...reduce her to being a mere instrument for the satisfaction of his own desires....
* "Finally, careful consideration should be given to the danger of this power passing into the hands of those public authorities who care little for the precepts of the moral law. Who will blame a government which in its attempt to resolve the problems affecting an entire country resorts to the same measures as are regarded as lawful by married people in the solution of a particular family difficulty? ....Should they regard this as necessary, they may even impose their use on everyone"
Few doubt that there has indeed been "a general lowering of moral standards," as well as a growing disrespect for women, in the past four decades. We also see affluent governments trying to impose contraceptive practices on less affluent governments! Yet, in spite of its proven prophetic nature, Humanae Vitae continues to meet with monumental resistance.Read more ›
