Vatican plan to “reinterpret” contraception? Roberto de Mattei, Rorate Caeli Friday, June 16, 2017 There are reports that a secret committee has been stablished in the Vatican to study ways to reinterpret Humanae Vitae, Paul VI’s encyclical maintaning the ancient teaching against contraception. Sources say the approach will be like that in Amoris laetitia: it will be said that the doctrine has not been changed but that there are individual hard cases that call for discernment, accompaniment, and mercy. © 2017 The Catholic Thing.
