Catholic priest gives Humanae Vitae homily

Sunday Homily by Father James Farfaglia of Corpus Christi, Texas

As I wrote in my book “Man to Man: a Real Priest speaks to Real Men about Marriage, Sexuality and Family Life,” prior to 1930 every Christian denomination agreed in their opposition to contraception. Today, the Catholic Church stands alone. However, even though the Catholic Church affirms that contraception is intrinsically evil, the majority of Catholics in America completely rejects and ignores the Church’s teaching on procreation.

Abortion in America could end tomorrow if the Catholic Church in America were to take a militant and united stand against abortion. But, it can only take a militant and firm stand in favor of the unborn, if the Church were to affirm in practice, and not only in words, that contraception is intrinsically evil.
