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.
