Natural Family Planning: We are no longer with CCL.

Sunday, July 8th, 2018

When I play tennis with a certain friend, a daily communicant, we usually end up talking about the Church. On July 2, her first question to me was “Are you going to the CCL conference on Humanae Vitae?” She had no idea we were no longer associated with the Couple to Couple League. Nor did she know that CCL dropped the three basic teachings we brought to this organization when we founded it in 1971. Another Catholic friend, also a daily communicant, also assumed we would be going to the CCL Humanae Vitae conference in our city and knew nothing of our separation.

My husband prays daily that CCL will return to the original Triple Strand: the covenant theology of sexuality, ecological breastfeeding, and Dr. Konald A. Prem’s flexible version of the sympto-thermal method. All of these teachings were dropped by CCL in 2007.

These teachings continue to be taught by Natural Family Planning International and by a few CCL chapters in Europe.

For more information, read Battlescarred: Justice Can Be Elusive by John F. Kippley.  (50% discount at until end of July)  The early part of this book relates events of 50 years ago that led us to teach NFP.

Natural Family Planning International is Unique!

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

Our apostolate is in very great need of funds.  We address the primary moral problem of this country: namely, the sexual revolution that started with the acceptance of unnatural forms of birth control.  We are also unique in teaching and promoting Ecological Breastfeeding according to the Seven Standards of Ecological Breastfeeding. This form of nursing and baby-care ensures that mother and baby are together and that the baby will be able to suckle frequently.  It DOES postpone the return of fertility.  It also maximizes the already great benefits of breastfeeding, benefits that include reduced risks of at least 21 health problems for babies and another half-dozen benefits for the mothers.

We are also almost unique among pro-life organizations in our theological teaching.  Namely, that “Sexual intercourse is intended by God to be, at least implicitly, a renewal of the marriage covenant.”  That gives real meaning to the human sex act.  Animals “have sex.”  Only married human persons can engage in an act that is, or at least ought to be, a renewal of their marriage covenant.  Meaning really does matter.

There are a zillion non-profit organizations that seek to help those who are the casualties, in one way or another, of the sexual revolution.  Please note: the single greatest source of new poverty is the household headed by a single woman with children.  We seek to reduce that poverty by teaching that sex acts outside of marriage are intrinsically dishonest.  Once that thinking becomes once again part of our culture, there will be a huge reduction in the number of those who are in one-parent, out-of-wedlock families.

Please help our apostolate as much as you can.  We will greatly appreciate it.

  • We need your help to keep sharing this information with those who seek us on the internet. The NFPI teaching manual, Natural Family Planning: The Complete Approach, is available online for only $10.
  • We need your help to keep offering personalized instruction with the NFPI Home Study Course. Users typically give it a 9 or 10 in their evaluation. No matter how small their town or how irregular their schedule, anyone can now have first-class instruction at their own pace.
  • You know that marital contraception is the elephant in the living room, the rectory and even the sanctuary. You know that the widespread acceptance of marital contraception has led not only to the consequences predicted by Blessed Paul VI but also to the widespread acceptance of both marital sodomy and same-sex sodomy and now to widespread societal acceptance of same-sex “marriage.”
  • Please help us to keep making a difference. Please help us to educate priests and bishops. Help us to reach out to couples via contemporary media. Please help us to share these beautiful teachings with the entire Church and the world.  Please make a difference in the lives of pastors and their people by generously supporting the NFP International apostolate.

Please send your most generous gift to NFP International. Everything helps, both large and small.   Thank you very much for your help.  We will use it well.  Donations are very much needed to keep NFPI alive.
