Why Humanae Vitae is Still Right

Why Humanae Vitae is Still Right

"Paul VI's genius proved prophetic: he had the courage to stand against the majority, to defend moral discipline, to exercise a 'brake' on the culture, to oppose present and future neo-Malthusianism."Pope Francis

After half a century, how has the teaching of Pope Paul VI on marriage and birth control, presented in his encyclical Humanae vitae (On Human Life), held up? Very well, says philosopher Janet Smith and her colleagues in Why Humanae Vitae Is Still Right. A sequel to Smith's classic Why Humanae Vitae Was Right, this new volume shows how the ethical, theological, spiritual, and sociological case for Paul VI's controversial document remains strong—indeed, how it's in some ways even stronger today, following Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body and in light of the problems caused by the sexual revolution.

In addition to essays by Dr. Smith herself, the book features contributions by other renowned experts and scholars such as Mary Eberstadt (author of the best-selling Adam and Eve after the Pill), George Weigel, Therese Scarpelli Corey, Michael Waldstein, Christopher West, Obianuju Ekeocha (author of the best-selling Target Africa), Maria Fedoryka, Deborah Savage, Derek Doroski, Angela LaFranchi, William Newton, Joseph Atkinson, Michele M. Schumacher, and Peter Colosi.

Why Humanae Vitae Is Still Right includes the Krakow Document composed under the supervision of Cardinal Karol Wojtyla (later, Pope John Paul II), which provided research by moral theologians and other experts that helped to shape Humanae vitae to be a more personalistic document.

Humanae Vitae 50 Years Later: History of Dissent and Defense

Humanae Vitae 50 Years Later: History of Dissent and Defense

Janet Smith, Ph.D. a seminary professor and internationally-known author and speaker, provides important context for why Humanae Vitae is considered the most controversial, and one of the most important, encyclicals promulgated by the Church in modern times. She discusses how this document written by Blessed Pope Paul VI served to prophetically warn the world of the dire consequences associated with artificial contraception and faithfully witness to the beauty of God’s plan for sex within marriage.

 

Dr. Smith is so clear on what she is speaking of and made sense of fifty years of controversy in a short period of time. I loved it! Eric - Omaha, NE

Has the Sexual Revolution Been Good For Women?

Has the Sexual Revolution Been Good For Women?

Both secular and religious observers agree that the sexual revolution has caused seismic changes for society across the globe. Mary Eberstadt, a secularly-trained writer who has written for Time Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, and the LA Times, among other publications, uses her training as a professional researcher to objectively assess whether or not the severing of sex and procreation has delivered on its promise to liberate women and make them happier.

 

This is a very important talk for men and women about the statistical evidence of the effects of the Sexual Revolution on society around the world, and how it has changed and impacted women and the attitudes towards them. Penny - Lake Arrowhead, CA

Prove it, God ... and He did!

As a lifelong Catholic, wife, and mother of three, Patty Schneier struggled with the Church's teaching on contraception – as many men and women do today.

Patty now speaks around the country about the challenges she faced on her amazing journey.

 

I enjoyed listening to the speaker opening up and sharing her true feelings on contraception. She was easy to listen to and kept my attention the entire time. Jessica - Carbondale, IL

From Love, By Love, For Love

From Love, By Love, For Love

Father Michael Schmitz tackles some of the most difficult topics in the Church today. With compassion, clarity, and humor, he shows that the Church's teachings on contraception and same-sex attraction are rooted in the yearnings for authentic love that is shared by all, who are made in the image and likeness of God.

 

Father Michael has the ability to communicate the Truths of Christ and His Church in a bold, comprehensible and super engaging way. This is the best talk I have heard on the reality of human sexuality as God intended. This is a must listen if you want to better understand the nature and purpose of sex (noun & verb). TOB 101.
