(LifeSiteNews) — On this week’s episode of The Bishop Strickland Show, Bishop Joseph Strickland notes the 54th anniversary of Humanae Vitae and speaks about the need to protect the integrity of marriage and family.

Humanae Vitae, promulgated by Pope Paul VI on July 25, 1968, is an encyclical that forcefully restated the Church’s teaching on God’s plan for marriage and family, including the intrinsic evil of contraception, as liberal elements in the Church and society at large argued for the moral acceptability of birth control.

“The whole episode of Humanae Vitae just reminds us that we can’t go with what’s popular,” Bishop Strickland says. “It’s not just another document to put on the shelf, but it’s talking about the very fabric of humanity, of human life, of marriage and family, and what has happened since it was, for the most part, rejected by even leaders of the Church and certainly by modern society.”

His Excellency adds that the more our society embraces what Humanae Vitae condemns, the “more harm it brings, the more destructive forces, the more evil is rampant in our world.”
