Book Review: Fruitful and Responsible Love

​Wojtyla, Karol. Fruitful and Responsible Love. St Paul’s Publications. ISBN 085439 159  2

Summary of the Book: Address given by Karol Woltyla, then Cardinal Archbishop of Cracow at the international Congress on family problems held at Milan in June 1978 to mark the tenth anniversary of Humanae Vitae.

My Views: The book approaches the key theme of the encyclical Humanae Vitae ‘fruitful and responsible love’ from a very pastoral point of view. I must say the book encourages the couples to take responsibility for themselves and their actions basing on the Love for each other. Love being the guiding principle one is led to do the right thing resecting each other. 

Though never stress on contraceptive means as something the wrong, the importance given to the explanation of Love makes one understand the right way of shaping ones life. 

Its quite am easy reading book.
