The papal encyclical Humanae Vitae (On Human Life) made headlines worldwide. Many talked about the encyclical when it was issued in 1968, but few actually read it. Why is it perhaps the most controversial document in modern Church history?
On Human Life combines Humanae Vitae with commentary by popular and respected Catholic authors Mary Eberstadt, James Hitchcock, and Jennifer Fulwiler in order to address this question and shed light on the document’s enduring wisdom.
Humanae Vitae is Pope Paul VI’s explanation of why the Catholic Church rejects contraception. The pope referred to two aspects, or meanings, of human sexuality: the unitive and the procreative. He also warned of the consequences if contraception became widely practiced—consequences that have since come to pass: greater infidelity in marriage, confusion regarding the nature of human sexuality and its role in society, the objectification of women for sexual pleasure, compulsory government birth control policies, and the reduction of the human body to an instrument of human manipulation. The separation of sexuality from its dual purpose has also resulted in artificial reproduction technologies, including cloning, that threaten the dignity of the human person.
Although greeted by controversy and opposition, Humanae Vitae has continued to influence Catholic moral teaching. St. John Paul II’s popular “theology of the body” drew deeply on the insights of Paul VI. Pope Benedict and now Pope Francis have upheld the long-standing teaching, and a new generation of Catholics, as well as non-Catholics, is embracing the truths of the encyclical.

En este CD, Luis Soto,
Director de Ministerio
Hispano del Augustine
Institute, nos explica cómo
todos los bautizados
estamos llamados a
responder al mandato de Jesucristo de
evangelizar. Citando las palabras de los
Papas más recientes e invitándonos a
tener una fe y convicción a toda prueba,
nos motiva a amar como Jesús ama si
queremos ser eficientes en la Nueva
Evangelización, que es nueva en su ardor,
en sus métodos y en su entusiasmo, pero,
sobre todo, nueva en sus protagonistas.
English Translation: Urgent Call to the New Evangelization
In this CD, Luis Soto, Director of Hispanic Ministry at Augustine Insitute, explains how all the baptized are called to respond to the command of Christ to evangelize. Citing the works of the most recent popes and inviting us to have a foolproof faith and conviction, he motivates us to love like Jesus loves if we want to be effective in the New Evangelization, which is new in ardor, in its methods and enthusiasm, but, above all, new in its protagonists.
Para muchos Católicos, la confesión es solo un medio para alcanzar un fin: lavarnos del pecado para poder recibir la Comunión. Sin embargo, como nos dice el Papa Francisco, la confesión es mucho más que “ir a la lavandería.” Es “un encuentro con Jesús que nos espera como somos.”
En 7 Secretos de la Confesión, el autor de gran éxito de ventas, Vinny Flynn, explora las verdades “ocultas” de ese encuentro con Cristo, presentando lo que para muchos será un modo nuevo de acercarse a la confesión, e invitándote a iniciar un apasionante camino personal de sanación y santidad.
Si aún no ansias la confesión de la misma manera que ansias la Comunión, lee este libro. Cambiará tu vida.
For too many Catholics, Confession is just a means to an end: cleaning us up from sin so we can receive Communion. But, as Pope Francis tells us, Confession is much more than "going to the dry cleaner." It's "an encounter with Jesus, who waits for us as we are."
Vinny Flynn, author of the best-seller, 7 Secrets of the Eucharist (100,000 copies sold), presents a similar approach to the Sacrament of Confession in this new book that reveals 7 key "secrets" or hidden truths about the great spiritual beauty, power and depth of Confession.
If you do not yet look forward to going to Confession with the same eagerness and expectation with which you receive Holy Communion, this book is for you. It will be a whole new way of going to Confession, inviting you to begin an exciting personal journey to healing and holiness. It may change your life.
This book is also available in English.

Well-known author, psychologist, and priest Fr. Benedict Groeschel draws on his own years of personal experiences in dealing with people’s problems, tragedies, and “darkness” as he offers help and guidance for any Christian troubled or burdened by life. If you are struggling with fear, anxiety, grief, loss of loved ones, hurt, anger, or anything that makes life difficult or the road through it dark, then this book was written for you. Fr. Benedict offers practical suggestions on how to keep going and even grow more with the help of God’s grace, even when this help seems remote.
The Christian response to the problem of evil and suffering began with the cross of Christ. Our answer is inseparable from the cross—from Jesus’ own encounter with evil and his triumph over it. In this light, Fr. Benedict recalls some of our most frequently encountered sorrows and griefs: the failure of friends, financial and personal insecurity, the failure of some in the Church, our own inconsistent behaviors and weaknesses, and the death of loved ones. As we examine these painful experiences, he shows that we can find solutions in the Gospel and in the lives of saints, heroes, and very brave ordinary people.
In this captivating presentation Fr. Shannon Collins discusses the essential character of the Holy Spirit and the role the forgotten Person of the Blessed Trinity has played since the creation of the world. Drawing upon Scripture and tradition, Fr. Collins explains the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit and how he works in the lives of believers. Listeners are sure to come to a better appreciation for this “sweet guest of our soul” who seeks to bring us closer to Christ and eternal salvation.
