Sexual intimacy, with contraception is emotionally damaging. I promise, even though there is often struggle with natural family planning, it is better than the living hell that comes with using artificial contraception. God’s way is natural, pure, unselfish and freeing! Contraception brings with it a mindset of “doing as I please” and “making my own rules.” It does not bring freedom, that’s a lie.
I will pray for this priest. Holy Mother Church is correct. God bless you.
