Archbishop Kevin introduced the DVD by giving an excellent presentation on selfless love. People very much appreciated the fact that he gave a theological talk rather than simply and encouraging 'ferverino'.
The Cathedral Hall was packed with lots of people standing at the back. It was good to see people of all ages there to celebrate what one person on the DVD referred to as the Church's 'best kept secret'.
In our parish we always promote Natural fertility Awareness. There is an advert for it each week in our newsletter and we always dedicate part of our marriage preparation course to it. One of our young parishioners is now a trained NFA teacher. Nicole Parker (nee Syed) says she has a stready stream of clients from this parish.
As a priest, it is a special joy for me to see how discovering Natural Fertility Awareness has transformed the relationship many of our couples have. An element of selfishness is removed, there is a new depth of communication, of consideration. A new joy and a new, more profound love. I hope the DVD will be a source of inspiration to many more young couples in the Church.
