As Catholics, we seem to be hearing the phrase, “Theology of the Body” more and more. But what IS the Theology of the Body? Theology of the Body Institute Executive Director Damon Owens sheds some light on the subject.
You understand the basics of Theology of the Body, but you’re still not sure how it all applies to you. Theology of the Body Executive Director Damon Owens reveals how the Theology of the Body can change your whole world view and make a deep impact on your life.
It seems like every time you hear about the Catholic Church in the media, they’re talking about sexuality – marriage issues, contraception, sexual morality, etc. But the question remains: why is the Church so hung up on sex? Aren’t there more important things to talk about? Theology of the Body Executive Director Damon Owens attempts to clear up the confusion.
When the question of scandal is brought up in regards to the church it is important to not connect the sin of the person and blame the church. Michelle Wright reminds us that while people are not perfect, God is and the Church is His, not ours.
The way people think that the Church treats sex is often vastly different from what she actually teaches. Dr. Gregory Popcak, Executive Director of PaxCare and author of “Holy Sex!” addresses how the Church’s teachings on sex have been misconstrued and distorted from the true reality of the good and beautiful message of the Church’s teachings on sex.
The teachings of the Church often seem stale, outdated, and irrelevant because of how old they are. How can the teachings of the Church still be relevant to the issues effecting the world today? Michelle Wright explains how the teachings of the Church are set in stone and how these teachings can be interpreted to apply to any issue in the world today.
What exactly is Theology of the Body? Christopher West, Theology of the Body Institute Speaker, explains this deep, profound teaching by John Paul II in an engaging and beautiful way.
