The Encyclical Humanae Vitae for Newlyweds

TO NEWLYWEDS AT GENERAL AUDIENCE OF 23 JULY, 1988

In view of the fact that 25 July is the 20th anniversary of Paid VI's memorable Encyclical "Humanae Vitae", the Holy Father urged the newlyweds who attended the general audience on 23 July to read and meditate on the encyclical.

Dear Newlyweds!

Accept my joyous greeting and my good wishes for your new life! I am grateful for your presence and I invoke on you the choicest heavenly favors, so that your married life will always be serene, happy, warm hearted, united by mutual love. Today I wish to remind you of the Encyclical Humanae Vitae which Paul VI published twenty years ago on 25 July 1968. I exhort you to read and meditate on this important document of the Church. With enlightened doctrinal certainty, and with deep human sensitiveness it traces the necessary directives for responsible parenthood, the grace of God, and peace of conscience. May this be your firm resolve, resulting from your pilgrimage to Rome and may you be sustained by my special Blessing which I impart to you with all my heart!
