On June 7, 1980, Pope John Paul II strongly emphasised to a group of Indonesian bishops the importance of following Pope Paul VI’s teaching that banned artificial contraception under all circumstances. St. John Paul II then said:
”In the question of the Church’s teaching on the regulation of birth we are called to profess in union with the whole Church the exigent but uplifting teaching recorded in the Encyclical Humanae Vitae, which my Predecessor Paul VI put forth ‘by virtue of the mandate entrusted to us by Christ’ (AAS 60, 1968, p.485)…Contraception is to be judged objectively so illicit, that it can never, for any reason be justified.“∎
Even as a sinner who knew it to be true, pope John Paul is right. Our blessed mother knows that modernism and the devil is corrupting our church and she is praying for all of us.
