25 July 2018 will mark the 50th anniversary of Blessed Pope Paul VI’s landmark encyclical Humanae Vitae. It was prophetic in nature regarding the dire consequences that Pope Paul VI saw in the escalating use of artificial contraception: increased marital infidelity, a general lowering of morality-especially among the young, a loss of respect for women, and governments forcing massive birth control programs on their people.
