Celebrating NFP: A way of love, way of life

| July 18, 2012 | 0 Comments

“Faithfully Yours” is the theme of this year’s Natural Family Planning Awareness Week, a national educational campaign of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to celebrate God’s design for married love and the gift of life and to raise awareness of natural family planning methods. NFP, as the U.S. bishops have written, is supportive of Catholic beliefs about married love because it “respects the God-given power to love a new human life into being.”

NFP Awareness Week, July 22 to 28, includes the anniversary of the 1968 papal encyclical “Humanae Vitae” (July 25), which articulates Catholic beliefs about human sexuality, conjugal love and responsible parenthood.

For more information about NFP, visit the website of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. You can also pray the “Novena for a Rebirth of Chastity and Purity”.
