National NFP Awareness Week: July 20 – July 26
2014 Theme: Natural Family Planning: It’s Worth It. Join the Revolution!
The dates of Natural Family Planning Awareness Week highlight the anniversary of the papal encyclical Humanae Vitae (July 25) which articulates Catholic beliefs about human sexuality, conjugal love, and responsible parenthood. The dates also mark the feast of Saints Joachim and Anne (July 26), the parents of the Blessed Mother. NFP reflects the dignity of the human person within the context of marriage and family life, promotes openness to life, and recognizes the value of the child. By respecting the love-giving and life-giving natures of marriage, NFP can enrich the bond between husband and wife.
Listen to this married couples honest and inspiring story about how they embraced the NFP lifestyle http://youtu.be/qFaIDMeb_GE
