I know, I know…another contraception post. Well, someone asked again.
People opine a lot that someday there can be a development of doctrine that will permit the practice of contraception, but they don’t understand the reason why contraception can never be permitted. Catholic moral laws are most fundamentally rooted in love. That is probably the single most misunderstood part of moral theology. It’s about love.
And this is not loving.
A marriage, man and woman united as one, is the most 1) fundamental and 2) intimate social unit. Scripture describes how the Father, the First Person of the Trinity, conceives the Word and begets the Son, the Second Person of the Trinity, gives all of Himself to the Son except to be Father. Did you catch the eternal fecundity in God, conceiving and begetting?
From the Father and the Son together – as one substance – breaths forth the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, the Holy Spirit, which is Love Himself. In God there is perfect unity, perfect giving, perfect receiving, perfect love between three Persons, so much so that they are One God.
Families are a reflection of that perfection…
