Theology of the Body Fiction #HumanaeVitae50 #anti50shades

Want to read some wholesome, wonderful stories that support human dignity?

This year we’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of Humanae Vitae, On Human Life, Pope Paul VI’s encyclical re-affirming the Church’s 2000-year teaching that artificial birth control is “intrinsically evil.” There’s no better way to learn about Theology of the Body than to read a great novel! These books are also life-affirming! I’d like to share some of my favorite Theology of the Body fiction!
