I have had an idea and, in order to accomplish it, I need of your help. After I have written about the lecture held at the Pontifical University of Gregoriana on Humanae Vitae where don Chiodi spoke about the “duty of contraception”, I have received different messages, emails and phone-calls from friends, men and above-all women, saddened and concerned, and some of them, to tell you the truth, even distressed by it. They are people who have taken on earnestly the encyclical of Paul VI on sexuality and the protection of life in their own life; and to hear a priest invited at the Gregoriana university – not at a parish course- say these kinds of things, has triggered painful reactions. These concerns are echoes of each other in their content. It has been this coincidence that has made me come up with the idea.
