Post subject:  Quick Research Q about NFP

This is probably not discussion material for this forum but I just had a quick question for you guys.

I'm not here to debate NFP, but moreso to get clarification on the accuracy of the following passage.

Acta Apostolicae Sedis, 43 (1951) 855 Pius XII. If anyone can help me find it that would be great.

Is this an accurate rendering of the passage?:

"The Church, on the other hand, can understand, with sympathy and comprehension, the real difficulties of matrimonial life in these our days. For this reason, in Our last address on conjugal morality, We affirmed the legitimacy and at the same time the limits—truly very wide—of that controlling of births which, unlike the so-called “birth control,” is compatible with God’s law. It can be hoped . . . that for such a lawful method a sufficiently certain [scientific] basis can be found, and recent research seems to confirm this hope."

Of course the portion in question is the bolded. Thank you.
