As the rain and snow come down from heaven, and return not thither but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and prosper in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55: 10-11.

Genesis 38

Last week, we finished with reading the story of Judah and Tamar, Genesis 38. That, given the failure of Judah and his sons to perform their duty to Tamar, provoked a discussion on the Church's position about artificial birth control. This week, I think we need to continue with that discussion, so I'll be bringing copies of Humanae Vitae, Pope Paul VI's famous encyclical letter on "the transmission of human life."

You can get that encyclical at the Vatican website:

Humanae Vitae

As time allows, we will continue with Genesis 39 and what follows.
