FaithWorx - Theology of the Body - Sunday 6:30pm

Theology of the Body

Christopher West
When: Sunday 6:30pm
Where: St John's Hall Meeting Room
Dates: 15th July, 22nd July, 29th July, 5th August
You are invited to view this ground-breaking DVD series over four Sunday nights beginning this weekend.
Drawing on Pope John Paul IIs Theology of the Body, Christopher West shares Gods original plan for marriage and sexuality. Christopher provides an understanding of this plan and how it gives profound meaning to all our lives – married, single, and consecrated celibates.

As a champion of the Popes revolutionary "theology" of the body, West points out the profound misunderstanding of what we understand male and female to mean. The Holy Father teaches that human lifes dignity and balance depends at every moment on "who woman will be for man and who man will be for woman." Gods plan of life and love is literally stamped in our bodies, and we reject this plan at our own peril.

The Theology of the Body has been called "one of the boldest reconfiguration of Catholic theology in centuries," according to the papal biographer, George Weigel. It addresses some of the most fundamental and important questions of human existence, including:

Why were we created male and female?
Where do we come from and why?
What is the meaning of life? How do we experience it?
Why is their evil in the world and how do we overcome it?

Talk 1: What is the Theology of the Body & Why Is It So Important?

Talk 2: The Creation & Redemption of Man and Woman
