THEOLOGY OF THE BODY IMMERSION COURSE WITH KATRINA ZENO

On the 9th-13th July 2018, 60 participants spent 5 days on board St. John Paul II's awesome vision of the human person. The Theology of the Body winter school was facilitated by Katrina Zeno. 

REFLECTION
ABBEL GASPI

Having a great devotion to St. John Paul II, The Theology of the Body was not a foreign topic. I have heard many inspirational speakers quote his writings. This was the first time I had attended a 5 day immersion course on St. John Paul II's theology of the Body. I would admit that I was blown away from day 1 exploring the Theology of the Body in the book of Genesis and how Adam and Eve in their relation to God and each other as a Total Gift expressed the true definition of love.  
By day 5 I was so surprised that I hadn't fallen asleep in class. Katrina did an exceptional job in keeping me on track scuba diving deep into the Old Testament through to the New testament.
What stood out for me the most throughout the 5 days is that exploring the Theology of the Body, explores majority of all theology from salvation, sacraments, church, eschatology and Scripture. 

I can't wait for level 2 immersion course next year. I would recommend all to get a head start in reading St. John Paul II's writings and journey with Katrina Zeno in unpacking his teachings.
