After discussing the broad principles of John Paul II’s Theology of the Body in our last class, this week we begin to focus on one specific application of that teaching.
This week we will discuss both the Church’s stance on artificial contraceptives and conversely, Natural Family Planning. Here are the readings for this week:
The bulk come from Paul VI’s encyclical, Humanae Vitae.
Furthermore there are two other documents from John Paul II, Familiaris Consortio and Gratissimam Sane. I highly recommend reading all of these documents in their entirety, for the sake of brevity, I have selected a few passages from each to compose the reading packet.
See you on May 4th at 7:00 PM at the Activity Building at Sacred Heart in Columbia.
