Natural Family Planning offers Catholic alternative

The beauty of Natural Family Planning, or NFP, has never been truly appreciated by today’s “culture of death” media and society. While open to the will of God and following the teachings of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, it is relatively cost-free. A small sacrifice to pay for a drug- and artificial-free means of family planning. 

As I, myself, will probably never Twitter or Tweet to Pope Benedict the XVI, I am very happy to say I have enjoyed true sexual freedom in my 34-year marriage. I am very blessed to have had three very unplanned sons.

Please let us not portray every Catholic person as not following the church’s position and the Pope’s teaching. It just isn’t so!
