A Preachable Message is designed to help clergy preach about the sometimes difficult topic of natural family planning. This book features an introduction by Cardinal Francis E. George of Chicago and offers ideas from bishops and priests throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Vatican. "Clergy often simply don't know the words to say when talking about 'Humanae Vitae' and natural family planning," said Sue Ek, executive director of the St. Paul-based association, who said the book grew out of an audiotape project several years ago. "This book not only gives the personal experiences of clergy but adds a dozen homilies and a chapter called 'Scriptural Opportunities' which will assist priests in developing homilies throughout the three-year liturgical calendar," Ek added, calling it "a tangible tool that will help clergy get the word out that the church has a beautiful, courageous teaching that helps marriages." This book contains teachings from (in order of appearance): Father James Sullivan, OP, Deacon Dr. Bob McDonald, Archbishop Charles Chaput, O.F.M., Cap, Father John Corapi, STD. SOLT, Father Kenneth Baker, SJ, Archbishop Harry J. Flynn, the late Father Ronald Lawler, O.F.M., Cap., Bishop Thomas J.
