A Summary of St John Paul's A Theology of the Body

Video from Paraclete Publications

The “Theology of the Body” is St. John Paul II's integrated vision of the human person. The human body has a specific meaning, making visible an invisible reality, and is capable of revealing answers regarding fundamental questions about us and our lives:

  • Is there a real purpose to life and if so, what is it?

  • What does it mean that we were created in the image of God?

  • Why were we created male and female? Does it really matter if we are one sex or another?

  • What does the marital union of a man and woman say to us about God and his plan for our lives?

  • What is the purpose of the married and celibate vocations?

  • What exactly is "Love"?

  • Is it truly possible to be pure of heart?
