• Humanae Vitae, 50th Anniversary Edition

    Pope Paul VI’s prophetic encyclical Humanae Vitae, issued in 1968, presented the Church’s consistent teachings on marriage and contraception to the modern world — a world that demanded then, as it does now, that the Church adapt her teachings to itself. Standing calmly and firmly against a culture that sees contraception and abortion as individual choices, Humanae Vitae shows us what it means to share in the creative work of God. Paul VI lays out God’s plan for human sexuality, a plan that invites married couples to celebrate the incredible gifts of human love and human life.
