Fr. Bloomfield's Blog

I am a Roman Catholic Priest of the Archdiocese of Detroit, currently assigned to Divine Child Parish in Dearborn, Michigan. When I manage to keep the page updated, hopefully something interesting can be found here!

More on NFP

NFP Awareness Week continues. I have enjoyed several discussions about contraception and NFP this week, some in response to my homily from a couple weeks ago. Another article here offers a great perspective from Fr. Thomas Duffner. His closing paragraph is interesting: "So, if your otherwise wonderful priest decides to talk about these matters, don’t assume he slipped a cog. He’s spending all his political capital because he knows that on this issue turns the health of your marriage, the strength of the parish and the survival of the Christian culture."
I've never met Fr. Duffner, but his thoughts echo mine exactly. We must continue to fight for strong marriages and strong families. If marriages are founded upon the Truth who is Jesus Christ, we can't go wrong.
