Catechesis on the Encyclical Letter on Human Life
As guardians rather than owners of the Church’s doctrines, the popes are simply unable to alter the Church’s stand on such topics as abortion, contraception, divorce, or women’s ordination.
When Pope Paul VI dramatically reaffirmed this teaching through his Encyclical Letter on Human Life in 1968, clearheaded commentators saw that far more than the issue of contraception was at stake. The whole body of Catholic teaching on the nature of the human person, of the one-flesh communion of spouses in marriage, and of the meaning of human embodiment in relation to questions of, for example, homosexual conduct and relationships, monogamy, and marital fidelity and indissolubility was on the line.
The Pope’s encyclical deserved the courtesy of a reading. He incurred the wrath of the theologians who promptly placed a full page ad telling all that they disagreed with the Pope and individuals could believe THEM and not worry about it. None of them had even read it yet.
Because of so much noise about the RH Bills at the present time (towards the end of 2010) this has been updated today, November 17th, 2010.
