♥ Book Title : Humanae Vitae Forty Years On. a New Commentary
☯ Full Synopsis : "The publication in July 1968 of Pope Paul VI's encyclical letter, Humanae Vitae, sparked unprecedented controversy about the Church's perennial teaching on human sexuality. For several decades, the papal document was disputed and often misunderstood in many circles. Yet, 40 years on, the prophetic quality of Paul VI's writing about human love is being recognised by more and more people. This book by Fr G. J. Woodall offers a new translation of this major encyclical together with a detailed commentary which enables the reader to understand the Church's message and which sheds light on the richness of the teaching. It is intended for the general public and conveys the wealth of pastoral teaching contained in Humanae Vitae, a wealth that has too often been overlooked. Today, when so many are grappling with moral issues in the areas of sexuality and family life, and when society is confused and misled, we can see Humanae Vitae for the prophetic document that it was and still is. Now that the Church is beginning to unpack the legacy of the Theology of the Body bequeathed by Pope Saint John Paul II, this new commentary on Humanae Vitae comes as a timely resource."Article| George J.

♥ Book Title : Life Together
☯ Full Synopsis : "In recent decades there has been a growing interest and focus on symbiosis and relationality in sciences, philosophy, and theology. The former ‘atomistic’ worldview in which things were examined in their individuality, as if they were somehow isolated and independent, and in which the concept of substance prevailed, is fading away in favor of an all-encompassing and synthetic understanding of reality, in which things are examined in their interconnectedness and in which the concept of relation is highlighted. This volume intends to be a contribution to this new worldview. In this book the relationship between life and togetherness is studied from the points of view of biology, neurology, psychotherapy, anthropology, bioethics, law, business, Greek literature, music, philosophy, and theology. Each chapter is the result of a particular discipline and is introduced by a meaningful quotation that offers a hint to the main thesis advanced by the author. Coming from different nations and universities, the writers of this volume joined the Research Project “The Organism in an Interdisciplinary Context.” Regina Apostolorum Pontifical University in Rome has led this project since the year 2005 with the aim of advancing a dialogue between sciences, philosophy and theology. Their converging research has produced a series of seminars and conferences as well as the publication of three books on the organism in an interdisciplinary context, the definition of death, and the relationship between life and organism."Article| Alfonso Aguiilar, Rafael Pascual| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Moral theology after Humanae Vitae
☯ Full Synopsis : "The author discusses some of the major developments in fundamental moral theology which were sparked off by the publication of the hugely controversial encyclical, Humanae Vitae (1968), as well as the impact of its rejection by many leading moral theologians. Within the broader cultural background of modernity, Professor Twomey analyses this dissent and attempts to sketch an alternative moral theology based on the recovery of virtue as the context for moral reflection and on a new appreciation of the nature of sexuality. He also attempts a positive appreciation of the generally neglected doctrinal content of Pope Paul VIs encyclical that shook the world when it appeared in order to explain why Humanae Vitae remains to this day a sign of contradiction within the Church and beyond."Article| Vincent Twomey| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : On Human Life
☯ Full Synopsis : "The papal encyclical Humanae Vitae (On Human Life) made headlines worldwide. Many talked about the encyclical when it was issued in 1968, but few actually read it. Why is it perhaps the most controversial document in modern Church history? On Human Life combines Humanae Vitae with commentary by popular and respected Catholic authors Mary Eberstadt, James Hitchcock, and Jennifer Fulwiler in order to address this question and to shed light on the document's enduring wisdom. Humanae Vitae is Pope Paul VI's explanation of why the Catholic Church rejects contraception. The pope referred to two aspects, or meanings, of human sexuality-the unitive and the procreative. He also warned of the consequences if contraception became widely practiced-consequences that have since come to pass: greater infidelity in marriage, confusion regarding the nature of human sexuality and its role in society, the objectification of women for sexual pleasure, compulsory government birth control policies, and the reduction of the human body to an instrument of human manipulation. The separation of sexuality from its dual purpose has also resulted in artificial reproduction technologies, including cloning, that threaten the dignity of the human person. Although greeted by controversy and opposition, Humanae Vitae has continued to influence Catholic moral teaching. St. John Paul II's popular "theology of the body" drew deeply on the insights of Paul VI. Pope Benedict and now Pope Francis have upheld the long-standing teaching, and a new generation of Catholics, as well as non-Catholics, is embracing the truths of the encyclical."Article| Pope Paul VI| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : These Beautiful Bones: An Everyday Theology of the Body
☯ Full Synopsis : "It was Blessed John Paul II’s greatest gift to the Church: The theology of the body. A window into who we are, the theology of the body is a theology for the rooms where we make love. But it’s also a theology for the rooms where we work, where we eat, where we laugh, and where we pray. These Beautiful Bones takes you on a walk through those rooms. With both humor and practical wisdom, it sheds light on what the theology of the body has to say about life beyond the bedroom, about the everyday moments of life, helping you discover how to let grace enter into those moments and make of them something extraordinary."Article| Emily Stimpson| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Modern Catholic Social Teaching
☯ Full Synopsis : "With an equal emphasis on every word in the title—and with a distinctly American perspective—Himes and his distinguished associate editors and contributors, have assembled the most thorough and authoritative assessment of modern Roman Catholic social teaching to date, likely to remain the touchstone volume for decades. This culmination of many years of effort by twenty stellar scholars has produced a reference work for anyone interested in understanding or studying the key documents that comprise the central corpus of Catholic social teaching. In addition to interrogations of the major documents, this volume provides an understanding of the biblical and philosophical foundations of Catholic social teaching, addresses the doctrinal issues that arise in such a context, and explores the social thought leading up to the "modern" era, generally accepted as beginning in 1891 with the publication of Pope Leo XIII's Rerum Novarum. Finally, there is a review of how Catholic social teaching has been received in the United States, and an informed look at the shortcomings and questions that future generations must address. By any standard, Modern Catholic Social Teaching is a remarkable work—intellectually rigorous and deeply faithful, it provides accessible and thought-provoking insights into the heart of a belief tradition that every Catholic will find invaluable."Article| Kenneth R. Himes, OFM| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Adam and Eve After the Pill
☯ Full Synopsis : "Secular and religious thinkers agree: the sexual revolution is one of the most important milestones in human history. Perhaps nothing has changed life for so many, so fast, as the severing of sex and procreation. But what has been the result? This ground-breaking book by noted essayist and author Mary Eberstadt contends that sexual freedom has paradoxically produced widespread discontent. Drawing on sociologists Pitirim Sorokin, Carle Zimmerman, and others; philosopher G.E.M. Anscombe and novelist Tom Wolfe; and a host of feminists, food writers, musicians, and other voices from across today's popular culture, Eberstadt makes her contrarian case with an impressive array of evidence. Her chapters range across academic disciplines and include supporting evidence from contemporary literature and music, women's studies, college memoirs, dietary guides, advertisements, television shows, and films. Adam and Eve after the Pill examines as no book has before the seismic social changes caused by the sexual revolution. In examining human behavior in the post-liberation world, Eberstadt provocatively asks: Is food the new sex? Is pornography the new tobacco? Adam and Eve after the Pill will change the way readers view the paradoxical impact of the sexual revolution on ideas, morals, and humanity itself."Article| Mary Eberstadt| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : AA-1025
☯ Full Synopsis : "Absorbing and compelling reading from beginning to end, AA -1025 Memoirs of the Communist Infiltration Into the Church is a must read for every Catholic today and for all who would understand just what has happened to the Catholic Church since the 1960's. In the 1960's, a French nurse, Marie Carre, attended an auto-crash victim who was brought into her hospital in a city she purposely does not name. The man lingered there near death for a few hours and then died. He had no identification on him, but he had a briefcase in which there was a set of quasi-autobiographical notes. She kept these notes and read them, and because of their extraordinary content, decided to publish them. The result is this little book, AA-1025 Memoirs of the Communist Infiltration Into the Church, a strange and fascinating account of a Communist who purposely entered the Catholic priesthood along with many others, with the intent to subvert and destroy the Church from within. His strange yet fascinating and illuminating set of biographical notes, tells of his commission to enter the priesthood, his experiences in the seminary, and the means and methods he used and promoted to help effect from within the auto-dissolution of the Catholic Church. No one will read this book without a profound assent that something just like what is describer here must surely have happened on a wide scale in order to have disrupted the life of the Catholic Church so dramatically."Article| Marie Carre| Statement ..."
