From the cited article: "If lessons are to be learnt from the past 50 years of post-Vatican II experience, it is the fundamental importance of the encyclicals of Humanae Vitae and Veritatis Splendor, to be open to life and to live by objective moral norms. This was a point made by Cardinal Pell some years ago at the ordination of priests. He noted that each priest had come from a life-affirming community rather than a contracepting one." Are we surprised that these two are under attack today?
