Church Teaching on Divorce, Contraception and Human Sexuality

I. Discourse of Pope John Paul on Divorce

This is the text of the Pope's discourse on divorce to the Roman Rota, the Church's highest legal tribunal, on 28th January 2002. more

II. Press Release of President of St Thomas More Society, Sydney

Press release of John McCarthy QC commenting on the Pope's Discourse. more

III. Commentary on John McCarthy's Press Release

The Pope gave specific moral direction obliging lawyers to make a particular judgement of conscience about every matter involving divorce. His authority is universal. The St Thomas More Society through its President, John McCarthy, interfered with that authority. Indeed, its action was a gross and peremptory interference in the personal spiritual life of every legal professional. more

IV. Humanae Vitae Forty Years On

There is so much the Pope could say over the failure of the world to heed Paul VI's teaching in this cardinal encyclical. more

V. The Truth and Meaning of Human Sexuality

In November 1995, with the blessing of Pope John Paul, the Pontifical Council for the Family published this document to assist Catholic families with the critical issue of the formation of children in human sexuality.  It has been almost universally ignored, especially by our bishops and priests who think nothing of endorsing the promulgation of secular humanist 'sex education' in our so-called 'Catholic' schools.  We recommend Catholic parents to download the document, to study it closely and to implement its directions in their own families.  more (pdf version only)
