Theological Reflections on Papal Teachings


John Paul II on Family and Sexuality  
Richard M. Hogan and John LeVoir
Reflecting on the love of God and the love He intended for humanity, Hogan and LeVoir articulate Catholic teaching on the dignity of the human person as affirmed by the family. They reference Pope John Paul II and his Theology of the Body as it pertains to an interpretation of Vatican II and how it should be applied to NFP.

Pope John Paul II and Humanae Vitae
Janet E. Smith

Pope John Paul II reflects on Humane Vitae and speaks to the Church about such things as the "gift of sexuality," and the body as an "expression of the person." Dr. Smith writes that the Holy Father's reflections reveal the connections between love and sex. Natural Family Planning, she argues, also provide a program that draws upon these similar connections.
