Bishop Gregory 's Interview with Currents
Bishop Gregory Mansour in this interview with Currents speaks briefly about Humanae Vitae and its impact which is felt tremendously today in our world. The beautiful teaching of Humanae Vitae is an invitation ("the Church doesnt not impose") for all of us "to move forward with wisdom and understanding of the beauty of man and woman." It is a confirmation that the Church is " a church of yes" not "the church of no"; the Church offers a positive, natural, scientifically based, fulfilling and rewarding alternative to contraception, an alternative that respects the dignity of women and integrity of marriage.
Bishop Gregory Mansour in his interview with Currents refers to NaProTECHNOLOGY seminar that was conducted at Our Lady Of Lebanon Cathedral in collaboration with the diocese of Brooklyn on May 30 2017 with Dr Paul Carpentier. Other seminars were organized in May 2019 at the Cathedral with Dr Lenore Snowden and in March 2019 at St Maron parish in Philadelphia with DR Monique Ruberu. Videos of these three seminars and other presentations can be found here.
