This issue covers several critical issues concerning life, and is a great complement and preparatory guide to Angelus Press' upcoming Conference for Catholic Tradition - "50 Years Since Humanae Vitae - What does the Church really say About Life?"
Don't miss out on either!
Excerpt: Letter from the Publisher -
Paul VI presided over a church in transition from the pre to the post-Vatican II eras. This transition witnessed the most fundamental revision of Roman Catholic liturgy in centuries, a changing priesthood marked by mass defections, a world deeply troubled from the crisis of authority and the liberation of the taboos.
In such critical context, Humanae Vitae stood as a sign of contradiction. In the controversy about contraceptives, Pope Paul VI, acting solo against his friends’ advice, produced the momentous encyclical which reaffirmed the age-old objective morality and denounced the pill. Yet, the experience had been excruciating for the liberal pope. Two years of indecision and his moral paralysis to go against his entourage revealed that he was not capable to lead the Church against a world quickly going mad. He seemed paralyzed in dealing with the Dutch catechism scandal, as well as some US prelates, along with a long list of de facto schismatic Episcopal conferences.
May this 50th anniversary of Humanae Vitae see the resurgence of Tradition and traditional teaching in the See of Peter.
Fr. Jürgen Wegner

Fr. Wegner opened with a beautiful introduction about the theme of this conference: "Life" - that life is sacred and that from conception to death, we are in the hands of God. The other talks were also diverse and thought-provoking.
