SotF 2018 – Theology of the Body: Into the Heart of JPII's Teachings
Using resources* from world renowned author and speaker Christopher West, join us as we unpack the Theology of the Body, Pope St. John Paul II’s integrated vision of the human person—body, soul, and spirit—as male and female. St. Therese Institute staff will augment the teachings through reflection upon the wisdom and insight of St. Thérèse of Lisieux.
In an intimate environment of study and prayer, following the St. Therese students’ way of life, participants discover the deep significance of: what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God; why God created us male and female; how the physical union of man and woman is innately oriented toward life and love; and how this union is the essential foundation for a life-affirming society, all in the light of the doctrine of spiritual childhood and the Little Way of St. Thérèse.
We can come to an understanding of human existence only through a proper understanding of human sexuality. West’s presentation of Theology of the Body in the context of St. Thérèse thought and spirituality can enable students to live more wholly integrated lives and discover that seeing the world through the lens of ToB is a key to deep rooted peace and joy.
*pre-recorded video lectures, and course book. NOTE: Christopher will (tentatively) be making 2 live video presentations via the internet during the course..
