Archbishop Paul S. Coakley
Let’s face it; couples who embrace the practice of natural family planning (NFP) are counter-cultural. They are swimming against the tide. They bear witness to a value that has lost its luster in our society: the beauty and goodness of fertility. NFP couples recognize that fertility is neither a nuisance nor a curse, but a great blessing. It is not a disease to be treated and suppressed with chemicals, but a gift to be received with respect and reverence.
