What Does the Body Say?

What Does the Body Say?

I love fresh air. I love anything that’s not confined, that flows freely, that refreshes with an unexpected twist and opens new horizons. That’s probably why I love the theology of the body. I have found that John Paul II's Theology of the Body is a very positive view of humanity: we are called to be Gift. It’s not really, in the end, about what we do. We are Gift and this gift includes fertility. In the theology of the body’s presentation of God’s language of love impressed on the human bo...

The Body's Language of Love

The Body's Language of Love

Man and woman are two different ways of “being a body” in the image of God. Man and woman live their full masculine and feminine identity in relation to the “other,” complementary but not interchangeable, equal but not equivalent.

Review of "Love and Responsibility"

Before Karol Wojtyla was elected to pope and became John Paul II, he had already written what was arguably his greatest work. Let that sink in for a moment. The great saint who gave us fourteen encyclicals such as Ecclesia De Eucharistia, Fides et Ratio, and Evangelium Vitae had already written a work greater than perhaps all of his encyclicals put together. This book was entitled Love and Responsibility, and if you love reading (soon-to-be) Saint John Paul II's writings then you'll definitely w...

Though A...

by Angela Franks, PhD in Contraception and Catholicism, releasing Nov. 2013A Catholic who has a big family and eschews contraception has likely had the following experience: Someone dismisses NFP by saying, “But that method doesn’t work; look how many kids you have.” In response, I like to say, “Define ‘work.’” If I had wanted to, in theory, I could have foregone the children I do have by using NFP to avoid pregnancy. But NFP has worked on me at a much d...
