Roman Catholic Bishops of England & Wales
Our bodies are not our own
Unfortunately there are some Catholic organisations which fail in their duty of care for marriage and family life by their failure to speak out against contraception and abortion, and in particular, their failure to speak out against the use of condoms. This is particularly disingenuous to all those married couples, celibate priests and religious who have faithfully lived out their married or religious lives in keeping with their call and the teaching of the Church. We are one family in Christ and we must be faithful to Him and to each other.
