Next month Christopher West will be in Omaha NE for a TOB conference. If you are in the Omaha area and have not had the opportunity to hear this amazing teaching from John Paul II, I highly recommend attending. Even if you have heard of TOB and studied it, there is always more to learn and Christopher is most entertaining as well as informative. It will be Saturday, June 28 at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church. Tickets are only $35 and can be purchased online through Spirit Catholic Radio or visit the event website for other contact information.
It is an illusion to think that we can build a true culture of human life if we do not…accept and experience sexuality and love and the whole of life according to their true meaning and in their close interconnection (n. 97)
Christopher West is probably the most well known expert on JPII’s theology of the body and does an excellent job of explaining it in a way that is non threatening and very easy to understand. You can read some of West’s articles at the Catholic Education Resource Center. Topics include:
What is the Theology of the Body & Why is it Changing so Many Lives?
God, Sex, & Babies: What the Church Really Teaches about Responsible Parenthood
In-Vitro Fertilization and the Hermeneutic of the Gift
A Basic Theology of Marriage
The Theology of the Body & The New Evangelization
John Paul II’s Theology of the Body: Key to an Authentic Marital & Family Spirituality
Celibacy for the Kingdom & the Fulfillment of Human Sexuality
And an interview with Christopher West
