Msgr. Gilfredo Marengo, a theologian who led important research on the drafting of St. Paul VI’s Humanae Vitae, has been appointed vice president of Rome’s Pontifical John Paul II Theological Institute for Marriage and Family Sciences.
Rumors of late, circulated by mostly conservative blogs, have suggested that Pope Francis and Italian Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia have created a secret commission to reevaluate the teaching of ‘Humanae Vitae,’ Pope Paul VI’s 1968 encyclical on birth control.
