Theology of the Body


Pope John Paul II devoted the first major teaching of his pontificate to what he called the Theology of the Body – a study of what God has revealed about Himself in and through the human body.  This profound and beautiful teaching calls everyone – regardless of age or vocation – to an authentic understanding and living out of what it means to be created male and female in the image and likeness of God.

 Through an in-depth reflection on the Scriptures, the Theology of the Body addresses the two most fundamental and universal questions: 1) “What does it mean to be human?” and 2) “How do I live my life in a way that brings true happiness and fulfillment?”  Therefore, this is a rich, refined understanding of our Catholic Faith and ultimately a re-discovery of the very meaning and purpose of life.

There are good reasons why the Theology of the Body is in such demand around the world.  It is renewing marriages, awakening vocations, healing deep personal wounds, and setting people free to live the life of greatness they were created for.
