7 Quick Takes Friday – Volume 82 (NFP Edition)

7_quick_takes_sm1Please join me and other Catholic bloggers at Conversion Diary for 7 Quick Takes Friday.

To wrap up the celebration of NFP Awareness Week, my 7QT will be NFP-related:

1. NFP Awareness Week!
Tell at least one person about NFP! Better yet, give them an NFP book (see below) or refer them to an NFP class. nfp-poster-2013-470x363px

2. 45th Anniversary of Humanae Vitae
Excellent article by George Weigel on the 45th Anniversary of Humanae Vitae.

3. Humanae Vitae
To read Pope Paul VI’s encyclical, Humanae Vitae, in its entirety, click here. Some critics feel that Pope Paul VI did not go far enough in condemning contraception, but if you read the full encyclical, I don’t think there’s any doubt that he condemns birth control unequivocally.

4. Devout Catholic Couples Have Better Sex
Who knew? Interesting article on why devout Catholic couples have better sex.

5. NFP and Responsible Parenthood
The following article was originally published in Family Foundations magazine and reposted on my blog: Difficult Anniversaries/Responsible Parenthood.

The first photo shows the two babies I was told NOT to have. The second shows what they look like today.

Non-Fiction: Theology of the Body for Beginners, Love and Responsibility, Growing Up in God’s Image.

7. Fertile Time Cartoon

  3. Love the photos of your boys. They are so cute. I think they will be heartbreakers, and not just because of their looks. Women really want good men and they are so hard to find.
