The Holy Father’s interview on the flight to Rome on February 17/18 has generated huge attention to what the Catholic Church does and does not teach about contraception—specifically what exceptions (if any) are permitted for the use of contraception. The supposed exception for rape-threatened-nuns in Africa was mentioned by the Pope and has since been set aside as a myth.
Most commentators have expressed alarm caused by yet another confusing off-the-cuff statement that could be interpreted as inconsistent with Church teaching. My take on this is that the Holy Spirit is working through/with Pope Francis to provide a great opportunity—obligation even— for the Catholic clergy to clarify for the masses (and preferably, at Mass) what the Church (Jesus) teaches about contraception.
