...NEW PUBLICATION FROM HUMAN LIFE INTERNATIONAL (IRELAND)...
Imprimatur by Bishop Noel Treanor
Down and Connor Diocese
Presenting real life experiences of married couples, expert opinion, medical facts, statistics, historical citations, Church texts and relevant websites, this book shows that to maximise your chances of marital fulfilment you absolutely must avoid using contraception.
"Who’s at the Centre of your Marriage…the Pill or Jesus Christ? Contraception’s disintegrating effect on marital harmony." was written by Patrick McCrystal, pharmacist, and published by HLI (Ireland).
The message of the book is if a husband and wife wish to maximise their marital harmony, they absolutely must avoid using contraception.
The new book bears the imprimatur of Bishop Noel Treanor, of Down and Connor diocese, and the foreword is written by Fr Thomas Euteneuer, former President of HLI.
The book was launched in Ireland in March 2009 amidst a flurry of media attention and Mr McCrystal had 21 secular radio interviews in a two week period.
In 1993, he ceased dispensing as a pharmacist the contraceptive pill and other drugs, due to their abortifacient action. As a result he was unemployed in his profession for three years, even though he attended about 30 interviews seeking a job.
In 1996 he wrote his first book entitled "Contraception and Evangelium Vitae". This book explored the abortifacient nature of the pill and was also published by HLI (Ireland).
What people say about this book:
"I have read many books on contraception and Humanae Vitae but your book is one of the best. I love it because it is so practical, so understandable and so Holy! – it upholds the teaching of the Church and the catechism. I am not into flattery but it is honestly one of the best books I have ever read."
Barbara McGuigan commenting during an interview with Patrick about his new book on the EWTN/Ave Maria Good Fight radio show
