There’s no need for me to write a post about what the Holy Father said about condom use in his recent interview with Peter Seewald.  There is, however, a need for you to know what he said so that we can correct the misunderstanding.

I say there’s no need for me to write a post, because they’ve already been written.  It’s important to read the remarks in context, which many people aren’t doing.  Here’s the whole section.

Next, I’d recommend the following blog posts.

http://www.ncregister.com/blog/the-pope-said-what-about-condoms/

It’s all still being discussed and debated, which in some cases, is healthy for the People of God.  But I think you’ll find clarity in those blog posts.  And, it’s possible that just by reading his comments in their entirety, you’ll see that he’s not telling everyone to go out and use condoms.
