"To live with our bodies, and not in spite of them, is a discovery our ‘civilized’ world is just now making. An old Asian wisdom maintains that perfection is only acquired through the mastery of the body. The more one is able to live with his or her own body and master its nature, the freer is one’s mind and the wider the horizons.” (Ingrid Trobish, NFP author in, Mary Shivanandan’s Natural Sex, 1979, Foreword) This week, July 20-26, is National Natural Family Planning (NFP) Awareness Week, an initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. The theme for this year is: Natural Family Planning: It's woth it! Join the Revolution.
