Shamefully I am not yet a subscriber to Cardinal Arinze’s webcast, though I pretty much love to hear anything the man has to say. But I recently stumbled upon another website with links to the Cardinal’s recent webcasts and found out that he has been doing a series on Theology of the Body. Really I have only ever heard TOB explained by Christopher West, who is brilliant, so I am anxious to hear from the Cardinal on JP II’s explanation of what is truly the deepest longing of every human heart.
TOB is fast making its way into the hearts and minds of the faithful and it’s about time. Christopher West says that if the task of the 20th century was to rid itself of the Christian sexual ethic, the task of the 21st century must be to reclaim it. This is key to building the foundation for a culture of life:
It is an illusion to think that we can build a true culture of human life if we do not help the young to accept and experience sexuality and love and the whole of life according to their true meaning and in their close interconnection (Evangelium Vitae n. 97)
