NFP (1)

by Carole Brown

I just received a copy of the University Concourse in my box at work and read Kathleen van Schaijik’s outstanding article: “NFP, by it itself, does not compromise the married vocation.” She addressed an attitude I have been aware of for some time, although I am single and thus not involved with NFP.

I think NFP is a God-sent method for many families, and while I too admire those who throw caution to the wind and abandon themselves to Divine Providence, I also believe that life is a cooperative process between God and us, and that this is an area where we do indeed “work out our salvation in fear and trembling.”
