Language of Love

Bishop James Conley of the great Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska has published a pastoral letter entitled, The Language of Love. It is on the topic of the Church’s teaching about marital love, and specifically, the use of contraception.

I highly encourage all to read this brief and very fine pastoral letter (CLICK).

You can also listen to the Bishop reading it:

Please share this information with your friends as well – even non-Catholics. There are sharing buttons at the bottom of this post.

Contraception is wreaking havoc (and has wreaked havoc) on our culture, on many levels. The prophecies of Pope Paul VI in his historic (and controversial) document “Humanae Vitae” have come true in our own time. We must be courageous and work to reverse this funest societal decline by being faithful to God’s plan for love and by helping others to know about it as well.

Take a look at Bishop Conley’s letter, or give it a listen!

    This was a wonderful post! I have shared via facebook, as there are many who do not understand why Catholics believe what we believe about love and marriage.

    Father Jerabek,
    Great letter! Bishop Conley’s letter needs to be repeated from the pulpit, taught at RCIA classes, and discussed during pre-Cana counseling. While we know that many Catholics ignore the Church’s teaching on this subject, we also feel that many, frankly, have never received proper instruction on the Church’s stance regarding contraception and NFP. We applaud Bishop Conley’s courage on taking on this subject and pray that more bishops and priests will do the same.

    Warm regards,
    Lisa and Dave McCord

    I have reread this a few times. It is one of the simplest, most complete, easy-to-understand explanations of Catholic teaching on contraception that I have read. Thank you for posting this. I will continue rereading it so I have better worded answers to all the questions I get about having such a large family!
