By now, whether through secular or religious outlets, you’ve likely heard about a recent book-length interview with Pope Benedict XVI titled Light of the World (Ignatius Press, 256 pages, hardback). This book presents the third extensive interview between the Pope and journalist Peter Seewald, the first two coming before Benedict was Pope.
Light of the World has generated some serious controversy over a few obscure paragraphs in the middle of its 256 pages. In these paragraphs, the Pope is asked about the Church’s position on condoms. He answers by re-articulating the Church’s traditional position that contraception is inherently counter to true sexuality, but in some cases condoms may be a step toward a deeper morality.
