The Theology of the Body|
Mrs Kathleen Schlueter, Catholic
The “Theology of the Body” is St John Paul II’s integrated vision of the human person. The human body has a specific meaning and is capable of revealing answers to important fundamental questions about ourselves and about God: Is there a meaning to life and if so, what is it? What is it that makes us truly happy? What do our desires tell us? What does it mean that we were created in the image of God? Why were we created male and female? Does maleness and femaleness really matter anymore? In Theology of the Body we learn to read the language of the body and to understand what it alone can tell us.
