To you most of all is committed the responsibility of safeguarding the common good. Nor will it escape you that if men’s peace of soul and the unity of the Christian people are to be preserved, then it is of the utmost importance that in moral as well as in dogmatic theology all should obey the magisterium of the Church and should speak as with one voice. Haud namque dubium est – ut saepenumero Decessores Nostri pronuntiaverunt 1 – Christum Iesum, cum Petrum ceterosque Apostolos divinae potestatis suae participavisset, eosque ad omnes gentes praeceptis suis docendas misisset, 2 illos ipsos totius de moribus legis certos custodes interpretesque instituisse: The question of human procreation, like every other question which touches human life, involves more than the limited aspects specific to such disciplines as biology, psychology, demography or sociology.

On ‘Humanae vitae’- Pope Paul VI did not act alone

Married love particularly reveals its true nature and nobility when we realize that it takes its origin from God, who “is love,” 6 the Father “from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named.

Particularly noteworthy is the plenary meeting of the expanded commission that took place March 25 — 29, Ecclesiae doctrina de liberorum incremento recte ordinando, quae legem divinam ipsam promulgat, sine dubio multis talis videbitur, ut nonnisi difficulter, immo etiam nullo modo servari possit.

Abortioneven for therapeutic viae, is absolutely forbidden, as is sterilizationeven if temporary. Vos primi in ministerio vestro perfungendo exemplum sinceri obsequii edite, quod interius exteriusque ecclesiastico Magisterio tribuendum est.

According to Paul VI, marital relations are a source of great joy, but also of difficulties and hardships. The Pope Speaks13 Fall. In the performance of your ministry you must be the first to give an example of that sincere obedience, inward as well as outward, which is due to the magisterium of the Church.

If they further reflect, they must also recognize that an act of mutual love which impairs the capacity to transmit life which God the Creator, through specific laws, has built into it, frustrates His design which constitutes the norm of marriage, and contradicts the will of the Author of life. But the most remarkable development of all is to be seen in man’s stupendous progress in the domination and rational organization of the forces of nature to the point that he is endeavoring to extend this control over every aspect of his own life—over his body, over his mind and emotions, over his social life, and even over the laws that regulate the transmission of life.


However, Paul VI made the decision to take the birth control issue out of the discussion.

‘Humanae Vitae’ was a rewrite

Responsible men can become more deeply convinced of the truth of the doctrine laid down by the Church on this issue if they reflect on the consequences of methods and plans for artificial birth control. Si primum biologicos processus reputamus, paternitas conscia significat cognitionem et observantiam munerum, ad eos attinentium; quoniam humana ratio in facultate vitae procreandae biologicas deprehendit leges, quae ad humanam personam pertinent.

Attamen conclusiones, ad quas Coetus pervenerat, a Nobis tales existimari non poterant, quae vim iudicii certi ac definiti prae se ferrent, quaeque Nos officio liberarent, tam gravis momenti quaestionem per Nosmetipsos consideratione expendendi; his vel etiam de causis, quod in Coetu plena sententiarum consensio de normis moralibus proponendis afuerat, quodque praesertim quaedam quaestionis dissolvendae viae rationesque exstiterant, a doctrina morali de matrimonio, a Magisterio Ecclesiae firma constantia proposita, discedentes.

The commission was only consultative but it submitted a report approved by a majority of 64 members to Paul VI. Eius igitur voci modeste obsecuti, christiani coniuges meminerint, suam vocationem ad vitam christianam, e baptismate exortam, sacramento Matrimonii amplius et explicatam et confirmatam esse.

As a consequence, ehciclica and wife, through that mutual gift of themselves, which is specific and exclusive to them alone, develop that union of two persons in which they perfect one another, cooperating with Votae in the generation and rearing of new lives. And now as We come to the end of this encyclical letter, We turn Our mind to you, reverently and lovingly, beloved and venerable brothers in the episcopate, with whom We share more closely the care of the spiritual good of the People of God.

But to experience eciclica gift of married love while respecting the laws of conception is to acknowledge that one is not the master of the sources of life but rather the minister of the design established by the Creator.

In carrying out this mandate, the Church has always issued appropriate documents on the nature of marriage, the correct use of conjugal rights, and the duties of spouses. Quodsi utraque eiusmodi essentialis ratio, unitatis videlicet et procreationis, servatur, usus matrimonii sensum mutui verique amoris encicilca ordinem ad celsissimum paternitatis munus omnino retinet, ad quod homo vocatur.

It arouses in them a consciousness of their responsibilities. The last document issued by the council Gaudium et spes contained a section titled “Fostering the Nobility of Marriage”nos. Huiusmodi doctrina, quae ab Ecclesiae Magisterio saepe exposita est, in nexu indissolubili nititur, a Deo statuto, quem homini sua sponte infringere non licet, inter significationem unitatis et significationem procreationis, quae ambae in actu coniugali insunt.

50 años de la ‘Humanae Vitae’: ¿Por qué la encíclica de Pablo VI es profética y actual?

Married love, therefore, requires of husband and wife the full awareness of their obligations in the matter of responsible parenthood, which today, rightly enough, is much insisted upon, but which at the same time should be rightly understood. Using the resources of the Vatican Secret Archives and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faiththey hope to detail the writing process and the interaction between the commission, publicity surrounding the commission’s work, and Paul’s own authorship.


To Pope Paul VI, as with of all his predecessors, marital relations are much more than a union of two people. There were two Papal committees and numerous independent experts looking into the latest advancement of science and medicine on the question of artificial birth control, [5] which were noted by the Pope in his encyclical.

There had been a long-standing general Christian prohibition on contraception and abortion, with such Church Fathers as Clement of Alexandria and Saint Augustine condemning the practices. Apostolicam actuositatemn. Paul VI did not take this suggestion, and started a new path of study, in his constant attempt to find a good balance between pastoral practice and doctrine. This can easily induce public authorities to be tempted to take even harsher measures to avert this danger. Retrieved 19 January Pariter, sicut Ecclesiae Magisterium pluries docuit, damnandum est seu viros seu mulieres directo sterilitate, vel perpetuo vel ad tempus, afficere.

Could it not be admitted, in other words, that procreative finality applies to the totality of married life rather than to each single act? And now We enciclkca in a special way to Our own sons and daughters, vjtae those most of all whom God calls to serve Him in the state of marriage. The study of these documents lead Marengo to a final conclusion: For it is in fact the law of human life restored to its native truth and guided by the Spirit of God.

Two months later, the controversial ” Winnipeg Statement ” issued by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops stated that those who cannot accept the humanaf should not be considered shut off from the Catholic Church, and that individuals can in good conscience use contraception as long as they have first made an honest attempt to accept the difficult directives of the encyclical. Among the biggest concerns of some commission members was that arguing that the use of a contraceptive pill could be licit in some particular cases would favor the anti-birth policies of the developed West, thus impacting negatively the poorest countries.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. But it comes as no surprise to the Church that it, no less than its divine Founder, is destined to be a “sign of contradiction. AAS 43 Acta vitaae, 1, pp.

Quare non agitur solum de mero vel naturae vel affectuum impetu, sed etiam ac praesertim de liberae voluntatis actu, eo scilicet tendente, ut per cotidianae vitae gaudia et dolores non modo perseveret, sed praeterea augeatur; ita nimirum ut coniuges veluti cor unum et anima una fiant, suamque humanam perfectionem una simul adipiscantur.
