by Msgr. Charles M. Mangan
The encyclical Humanae Vitae, issued by Pope Paul VI in 1968, contains remarkable pearls of wisdom. This encyclical presents the Church’s normative doctrine regarding the procreation of human life that is rooted in the teaching of centuries past but is also applicable to our era.
This 51-page booklet, in question/answer format, probes the depths of wisdom of the Church’s teaching as to why contraception is not only wrong, but unwise for the individual and for society. Msgr. Mangan’s booklet covers the difference between contraception and having recourse to the natural periods of infertility to avoid conception.
Includes the text of Humanae Vitae. A great study guide for engaged or married couples.
