The Gospel of the Body and the Little Way: Living St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body with the Help of St. Therese of Lisieux - SotF 2019
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. These teackings will be augmented through reflection upon the wisdom and insight of St. Thérèse of Lisieux — an exclusive component compiled by Christopher West specifically for this course at St. Therese Institute!
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.
