World renowned author and speaker Christopher West unpacks the Theology of the Body, Blessed Pope John Paul II’s integrated vision of the human person—body, soul, and spirit—as male and female. In an intimate environment of study and prayer, 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.
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's thought and spirituality—a St. Therese Institute exclusive—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.
