When Pope Paul VI wrote his revolutionary encyclical Humanae Vitae in 1968, few knew at that time just how prophetic the writing would turn out to be. Yet, in spite of over 40 years since its writing, no doctrine is more misunderstood today than the Catholic Church’s teachings on sex, contraception and marriage.
Three of Catholic Answers premier apologists have spent a large part of their time studying the topic and developing resources that are concise and easy to understand when it comes to putting this essential teaching into practice.
We’ve bundled several of their resources together in a package that’s sure to answer all of your questions and put your mind at ease.
Here’s what you’ll get:
- In Life-Giving Love: Understanding Chastity In Marriage, renowned chastity speaker and author Jason Evert says the time has come for a natural sexual revolution that embraces the beauty and wonder of sex in its untainted, God-given fullness. It’s a ninety-minute talk filled with gentle humor and careful attention to solid Church teaching and to the latest science.
- Sex Au Naturel: What It Is and Why It’s Good For Your Marriage by Catholic Answers Live host Patrick Coffin is a bracing ride across the landscape of the Catholic sexual ethic. If you’re looking for intellectual ammo with which to defend and explain the teaching of Humanae Vitae, or if you reject it altogether, you’ll agree that Coffin approaches the topic from a wide array of new and persuasive angles with humor and enthusiasm—and a total absence of moralizing.
- In an accessible question-and-answer format, Jason Evert explains the biological, spiritual and relational benefits of NFP. Pure Intimacy will help readers understand God’s plan for the gift of their sexuality and the many graces of natural family planning, helping them build stronger marriages and thus stronger families.
- In 101 Quick Questions with Catholic Answers: Sexuality, Catholic Answers’ staff apologist Peggy Frye presents a sort of “greatest hits” of questions on sexuality and in the process covers a great deal of ground on this often complex and always contentious portion of Church teaching
This package is a great crash course in both the theology and biology of human sexuality, guaranteed to teach you something you didn’t know about God’s design for married love and procreation. And more than that: it’s an antidote to the anti-life mentality so prevalent in our age.
Watch, read and learn how to combat the worldly lies that threaten married couples in body, heart, and spirit.
