The USCCB issued yesterday a document titled "Married Love and the Gift of Life
" at their bi-annual meeting in Baltimore.
This document is a good overview of what the Church teaches (and does not teach) about the use of contraception in marriage and how it corrupts the procreative and unitive meaning of the marriage bond.
It is a concise, non-technical, non-theological document that could be used to teach those who do not understand or have never heard what the Church teaches about contraception.
The document itself indicates this when it says that the Churches teaching on contraception is "a teaching that many couples, through no fault of their own, have not heard (or not heard in a way they could appreciate and understand)."
This important teaching affects the work we do in the pro-life movement because the widespread use of contraception leads to widespread abortion.
Our Shepherds have spoken. Let's get the word out.
