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.
