Humanae Vitae 50th Year Anniversary Series

“I’m a sinner. I don’t want the Church to show me how I can be comfortable with my sins. I want the damned things out. All the deadlier is the principle of sin. The principle of the sexual revolution is a lie. Its root is in hell.” — from No Way Out by Anthony Esolen
“Contraception is like walking pneumonia. The pneumonia is working on your system, but you can still function and pretend it isn’t there. Contraception is like a hidden cancer, concealed, but constantly eating away on your healthy organs.” — from a homily as presented by Fr. Matthew Habiger OSB, a consultant at NFP Outreach

July 3, 2018 — Catholic Quest is organizing a series of events throughout the Boston Archdiocese over the next year to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Humanae Vitae. We believe that widespread dissent from this encyclical brought about a catastrophe for the Church and for all mankind. It is time to proclaim the need to return to this prophetic teaching of Pope Paul VI and seek healing from the many terrible injuries of the sexual revolution!

We propose to work for the restoration of Humanae Vitae to its proper place in Catholic thought and morality in order to reveal and explain it to lay Catholics who, in many cases, have been deprived of its wisdom through no fault of their own.

Please visit this page often to learn about our plans and join us in this endeavor whenever you can.

July 25, 2018 — Our spiritual advisor, Fr. Jurgen Liias, celebrated our Opening Mass at St. Patrick Parish in Stoneham, MA. This was on the exact 50 year anniversary of the issuance of Humanae Vitae. Our opening event and the talk by Leila Lawler was co-sponsored by the Center for the Restoration of Christian Culture at Thomas More College.

September 29, 2018 – Nancy Malo spoke at the Center for the Restoration of Christian Culture on the topic of Humanae Vitae: a Mustard Seed of Truth.

Listen to Fr. Jurgen's Homily
