NFP Week! Intro Post

nfp-awareness-mobile-banner

Happy NFP Week! Every year the Catholic Church (at leas in the U.S.) raises awareness for natural family planning during this second-to-last-week in July. Why this week? Well, July 26 is the anniversary of the release of Humanae Vitae, the encyclical by soon-to-be-blessed Pope Paul VI. It is also the feast day of Saints Anne and Joachim, Mary’s parents.

This week I’ll have a few posts on the subject–as best I can write, for aside from light charting, I don’t practice NFP personally. But in light of court decisions and conversations around women’s health, it’s a practice every young woman (especially those desiring and preparing themselves for future marriage) should be aware of.

The Schedule:

Monday: Modern Media Meditation– Humanae Vitae

Tuesday: Topical Tuesday–NFP: We Can Do Better

Wednesday: What We’re Reading Wednesday: The Sinner’s Guide to NFP by Simcha Fisher

Thursday: Thoughtful Thursday: We Can Do Better Part 2

Friday: 7QTF–Thoughts on NFP

Saturday: Saints for Saturday–Anne and Joachim, parents of the Immaculate Conception, Mary
