I am the sponsor of a man (39) who has three children (one just born) and he is currently in RCIA. I found out through my wife who is good friends with his wife he is planning on getting a vasectomy. I understand the churches stance on this but how do I address the issue without offending him. I practice NFP and will address it when the topic comes up but I think he is reluctant to bring the topic up because his mind is pretty much made up or so I understand. I am afraid it may be to late to already. I also do not want to “scare him him off” because the RCIA program is a bit week in our parish. Any recommendations on this.
I have all the mp3 from Dr. Janet Smith. Humana Vieta (spl), the CCC and a good understanding of NFP. I feel obligated as his sponsor to make certain he understands the gravity of this and what the Church teaches, or am I stepping out of my lane and getting into the Priest’s business of providing counsel.
