This encyclical written by Pope Paul VI and promulgated on July 25, 1968, re-affirms the traditional teaching of the Catholic Church regarding abortion, contraception, and other issues pertaining to human life. Paul VI states that the Church is concerned with safeguarding the holiness of marriage, in order to guide married life to its full human and Christian perfection. The document teaches that the transmission of human life is a most serious role in which married people collaborate freely and responsibly with God the Creator. This is a divine partnership. Married love takes its origin from God, who "is love," and from this basic dignity, he defines his position: In the very special form of personal relationship which is marriage, a husband and wife generously share everything, allowing no unreasonable exceptions and not thinking solely of their own convenience. True love is to love one's partner for the partner's own sake, willingly enriching the other with the gift of oneself. Paperback, 5 x 7, 40 pages. (Editor's notes ©2018)
