In to 11-ooo-word pastoral letter adopted by a vote of 180 to 8. The Bishops declared that artificial contraception is always an a objective evil but that a circumstances May reduce moral guilty for couples that consider themselves compelled to practice it. By implication the Bishops left it to each couple to decide whether by practising artificial birth control they have incurred a sin which needs to be confessed. Plea to couples a we urge those who have resorted to artificial contraception never to lose heart but to continue to take full advantage of the strength which comes from the sacrament of penance and the Grace feeling and peace in the eucharist a the pastoral letter said. The Bishops after nearly a week of debate also called on Congress to Amend the draft Law to permit Young men who object to a particular War but not to War in general to be exempt from service. They welcomed the bombing halt in Vietnam and expressed prayerful Hope that peace would emerge from the Paris negotiations. Indirectly t h e Bishops criticized president elect Richard m. Nixon a emphasis in his Campaign on maintaining american nuclear superiority. A pointless quest for a a superiority when both the United states and Russia have enough bombs to destroy each other might Start a dangerous acceleration of the nuclear arms race they contended.

Viet separate however Nixon May not be consulted and will not have a voice in decisions that will be carried out and completed before Johnson leaves office Jan. 20.

Big controversy the Pope s july encyclical on birth control provoked widespread controversy within the Church and open rebellion by some priests and laity and led subsequently to a broader questioning of the centuries old structural authority of the Church. There Are about 47 million catholics in the United states. The Bishops letter said the encyclical must be regarded As a a authoritative and presenting without ambiguity or doubt or hesitation the authentic teaching of the Church. Significantly there was no indication in the Bishops that a Catholic who practice contraception must confess it As a sin before taking holy communion the eucharist. Theologians said the effect of the letters silence on this Point was to leave it up to each individual to decide for himself whether he Felt guilty of a serious sin.
