Fr. John O'Connor: dissent is blasphemy !

Fr. John O'Connor

"One of the Twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said,
“What are you willing to give me if I hand him over to you?”
They paid him thirty pieces of silver,
and from that time on he looked for an opportunity to hand him over'.


The gift of faith must be guarded and protected. It needs to be nurtured with prayer and acts of corporal mercy. When we abandon one aspect of the gift of faith, little by little, we end up losing all of our faith. So it tragically was with those who rejected the Church's teaching about the sacredness of the Marital Act. 

Here, Fr. John O'Connor reflects on the of dissenters against Humanae Vitae. The near universal rejection of Pope Paul VI's reaffirmation of 2000 years of Church teaching that the use of contraception is a grave mortal sin has very serious consequences. Rejecting Humanae Vitae, the dissenters - as Fr. O'Connor said - claimed that not only was Christ's Vicar was wrong, the Church was wrong. In this, as Fr. O'Connor pointed out, they blasphemed the Spirit of Truth, the Holy Spirit. 

Please listen to the following talk by Fr. O' Connor on dissenting theologians from Humanae Vitae:
