Birth Control and Spirituality

“A preference for what is easy is not a characteristic trait of Catholic Spirituality. In order to live you have to die to self, in order to reach your end you have to take the narrow path. If we want to follow Christ we need to deny ourselves, take up the cross and follow him. This is what we find in the Gospel.” – Fr. Joseph LaBoy


Why is artificial birth control an option for Catholics who are willing to use contraceptives? On the occasions I have presented the possibility of using natural family planning (NFP) to Catholic couples who use contraception to avoid pregnancy, the usual response has been: “It’s too hard.”

What is sought, therefore, is a quick and easy solution to a problem. But can problems really be solved with quick and easy remedies?
