Humanæ Vitæ

In three days time, we will celebrate the fortieth anniversary of Pope Paul VIs encyclical on the ethical transmission of life (and other important things), and still it isn't being heard. I really think people don't understand it.

Is there anybody here in the south of England who would be willing to come to my parish and speak convincingly on this subject? Please; this is a serious request. I have made little headway. I don't know where to turn.

Invite Fr. Tim down... he's a really inspiring speaker on the subject!

Fr Sean

I would advise you NOT to read this week's Tablet. I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that it is a sustained "attack" on Humanae Vitae and all that it stands for.

Maryvale Institute, in collaboration with Family Publications, has just published a new translation and commentary on HV. The author is Fr George Woodall who lectures at Regina Apostolorum in Rome and is a member of the Pontifical Acadamey for Life (Secretary, I think).

The commentary on the text is very good as is the general commentary - which makes very clear the Church's teaching on the unitive and procreative aspects of Marriage.

You may find it useful, Father. It's £8.95 from Maryvale: bookkeeper@maryvale.ac.uk
