Yeah, this is what I was getting at.

Though I always wonder if God wasn't preventing something even worse by only permitting John Paul I a 33 day reign...

I think that the promulgation of Humanae Vitae is a sign that God has been protecting the Church through this mess. I can't say, and don't really want to, which pope contributed more to the problems.  I think that SPB is right in his assessment of  the problems inherent in this topic. 

I keep thinking about Sunday's homily which compared Peter's boat being swamped by waves to the Church.  Jesus told them to have faith and not be afraid.  That is still a message we need.
