On the contraceptive mentality, three

from today's reading at Mass, from Hebrews

"This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws on their hearts, and write them on their minds

What puzzles me about the contraceptive mentality among Christians, and even Catholics, is that we have by baptism the natural law as well as the indelible mark of a child of God and heir of heaven.

We have the virtues given to us in sanctifying grace.

What happens to all that power, clarity and love of God?

What happens so that by age 14 or so, the vast majority of girls are contracepting? How does this happen?

How does it happen that there are three generations of contracepting Catholics in Great Britain?

How do we evangelize this group?

How do we reach the hard of heart?

The confusion of an adult is the fault of the adult. We can all make decisions. Where do we start? Prayer.
