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!

Reasons for NFP

Another excellent article (even if a little lengthy) for understanding the reasons why the Church teaches what she does about contraception can be found here. It's from Dr. Philip Blosser's Blog "Musings of a Pertinacious Papist." In it, he quotes from Dr. Janet Smith's talk "Contraception, Why Not?" in which she describes the reasons to believe and follow the Church's teaching.

One analogy that I had forgotten from Dr. Smith's class (she is a professor of moral theology at Sacred Heart Major Seminary, here in Detroit), is that in a certain way, contraception is similar to bulemia. How, you ask? Read the article, and find out!
