Archbishop Gomez: reread Humanae Vitae with ‘new eyes and open hearts’

CWN Editor's Note: Blessed Paul VI issued Humanae Vitae, his encyclical letter on the regulation of birth, on July 25, 1968. “Much of what Pope Paul warned of has come to pass—from rampant divorce, infidelity and pornography, to ‘test-tube’ babies, widespread abortion, ‘demographic winter,’ and the total confusion about gender, sexuality and the human person that we see in our society today,” the archbishop of Los Angeles said. “But we should also read Humanae Vitae as a promise. This is a letter about happiness and love.”

    Unfortunately the pope's cronies are reading Humanae Vitae "with new eyes" to see if they can undo everything Pope Paul did just as they are trying to undo everything that St. JP II and Pope B XVI have done.
