The Most Rev. Thomas J. Olmsted, Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix, explores what is undoubtedly the most controversial encyclical of the 20th Century — Humanae Vitae — and its counter-cultural message about marriage, family and human life during the late 1960s.

Bishop Olmsted reflects on Humanae Vitae’s place in the world today, and how Pope John Paul II’s wisdom and defense of the landmark encyclical have helped the world understand the need for it some 50 years after its release.
