Theology of the Body Course (10 hours), 4, 11, 17, 25 April 2019


Considered as one of the greatest legacies of St John Paul II, this catechesis explains Catholic teachings through the lenses of the nuptial mystery. Understanding sexuaity, love and the meaning of life is critical not only to marriage and sexual morality, but concerns the entire Gospel, the Bible and in fact the whole Mission of Christ. A must for all in family and youth ministry and catechesis.

Theology of the Body Introductory Talk, 21 February 2019


What is the Theology of the Body? Why is this considered one of the most important legacies that Pope St John Paul II has given us? Why did he call it the basis of the most appropriate method for mankind’s “self education” and that it “concerns the whole bible, the whole Gospel. … the whole teaching, even more the whole mission of Christ”

In No 44 of the Final Report to the Pope of the Synod of Bishops on the Family, : The Theology of the Body “has given the Church a wealth of reflections on the nuptial meaning of the human body and God’s plan for marriage and the family from the beginning of creation. In particular, by treating conjugal love, he described how spouses, in their mutual love, receive the gift of the Spirit of Christ and live their call to holiness” This was reflected in Amoris Laetitia No 69″ St John Paul II devoted special attention to the family in his catharsis on human love, … ”

In No 39 9f the Final Document of the Synod of Bishops on Young People, Faith and Vocational Discernment

39.   The Church has a rich tradition on which to build and from which to put forward her teaching in this area:  for example, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the theology of the body developed by St John Paul II, the Encyclical Deus Caritas Est by Benedict XVI, the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia by Pope Francis.
