The Catholic Equivalent of Shark Week

Last week saw the conclusion to NFP Awareness Week as declared by the USCCB. A little odd for a title? Maybe, but nonetheless, why not spend some time becoming more aware AND spreading awareness of NFP to others? This is one of those areas where the Church shines brightest and provides the most help for the world that is so confused about sexuality that most today don't know which way is up.

The Bishops' website has some very good materials to help people become informed about Natural Family Planning. Click here to explore all of the wonderful resources. The video at the top of this post is a preview for the following video you can order by clicking here - it looks really well done, and is only 28 minutes.

If you have questions about NFP schedule an appointment with a priest who believes in it and unlock the key to happy and successful marriages. Even those who are not currently married will benefit tremendously from learning about NFP, and enabling ourselves to spread the good news about God's plan for those who are married. Sometimes I think it is those of us who are unmarried who are most aware of the central role that the institution of marriage plays in transforming our society into a civilization of Love.
