    Humanae Vitae. ITEMS ON A STUDY COMMISSION TO EXAMINE THE VATICAN The ENCYCLICAL PAUL VI.

    In indiscretions Vatican good source are expressing that the Pontiff would be about to appoint – or would even already formed – a secret commission to examine and possibly studying changes to the position of the Church on the subject of contraception, as was set in 1968 by Paul VI in his encyclical Humanae Vitae. That was the last such document signed by papa Montini, and was the formalization of what the Second Vatican Council had elaborated on this theme.

    We have not had so far official confirmation of the existence and composition of this body; but a request for confirmation, or denial, advanced through the competent authorities so far had no answer. This could in itself constitute a signal. In the sense that if the news was totally unfounded it would not have much to say. On who would be involved there are only hypotheses; Perhaps Msgr. Vincenzo Paglia, recently put in charge of what relates to this kind of activity, perhaps the rector of the Catholic University of Buenos Aires is the “shoulder” of the theological papacy. But they are just guesses.

    Humanae Vitae was published on 25 July 1968. On the basis of Humanae Vitae Giovanni Paolo II and Benedict XVI have based their teaching on the subject of matrimonial doctrine.

    Montini The document, which was received with much controversy and debate, reiterated the inseparable connection between the unitive and the procreative aspects of the conjugal act; and above all, against the expectations of many, were declared illegal chemical and mechanical means of contraception, he condemned abortion and sterilization and approved family planning systems based on the recognition of fertile periods systems.

    A study committee created to help the Pope from a technical point of view was apparently in favor of the “Catholic pill” (as it was dubbed); but also in the committee’s opinion was not uniform, and some of the experts felt that the use of contraceptives was going to violate the moral law, using them as the couple sundered the unitive dimension from the procreative. Paul VI put this position, and in fact wrote.

    “By calling men to observe the norms of the natural law, it interprets by its constant doctrine, the Church teaches that every marriage act must remain open to the transmission of life. […] In accordance with these fundamental principles of human and Christian vision of marriage, we must once again declare that it is absolutely excluded as lawful way for birth control, the direct interruption of the generative process already begun, and especially the ‘direct abortion, even for therapeutic reasons procured. Equally to be condemned, as the magisterium of the Church has frequently declared, is direct sterilization, whether perpetual or temporary, as man and wife. Similarly excluded is every action which, either in anticipation of the conjugal act, or in its accomplishment, or in the development of its natural consequences, proposes, as an end or as a means, to render procreation impossible. ”

    In the same document Paul VI called the spouses exercise of responsible parenthood, to be exercised “In relation to physical, economic, psychological and social” of the couple. In a celebrated interview with Jean Guitton, Paul VI explained that “The Church of Christ, which we represent in this world, if you cease to make the pleasure to love and love to procreation, would favor an erotic perversion of humanity, which would by law only the pleasure. “
