Take a look at the brief seven minute video below:
What is Theology of the Body?
The Theology of the Body refers to the series of 129 lectures given by St. John Paul II during his Wednesday audiences in Rome between September 1979 and November 1984. These addresses were later compiled and published as a single work entitled The Theology of the Body According to John Paul II. The Theology of the Body covers such topics as the bodily dimension of the human person, the nature of human sexuality, the human need for communication, and the nature of marriage.
It is more than an exposition of the Church’s teachings on human sexuality. It is, in fact, the Catholic Sacramental worldview, understood, structured, and articulated for a culture plagued by a diseased understanding of man. When properly understood and truly lived, that worldview has the power to transform the way men and women understand their bodies and their souls, their masculinity and femininity, their vocation in this life, and their destiny in the next.
