.- Priests for Life will launch a special yearlong observance, leading up to the 40th anniversary of the encyclical Humanae Vitae.

The observance will be launched on July 25th the same day that Pope Paul VI proclaimed Church teaching on human sexuality and contraception.

“Pope Paul VI proclaimed in a clear and prophetic way the demands of the Gospel regarding how we approach human life and sexuality," said Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life. 

"Thirty-nine years later, his message is even more timely and urgent to hear.  The purpose of this observance is to help people hear it, starting with churchgoing Catholics,” he continued.

Fr. Pavone urges Catholics to read the Church encyclical as a first step in preparation for the anniversary.
