Beginning in 1979, Pope John Paul II began a series of Wednesday audiences dedicated to the teachings of Christ:  all about the real meaning of love and God's plan for human relationships.  Five years and 129 audiences later, he finished in 1984. 

This is the Theology of the Body.

Insight into the Theology of the Body...

Love is "one of the greatest dramas of human existence."
Pope John Paul II
 
God “impressed his own form on the flesh…in such a way that even what was visible might bear the divine form.”
CCC 704
 
The body, in fact, and it alone is capable of making visible what is invisible: the spiritual and the divine. It was created to transfer into the visible reality of the world, the mystery hidden since time immemorial in God, and thus to be a sign of it.
John Paul II  |  Feb. 20, 1980
 
Love is our origin, our vocation and our end.
Christopher West
 
‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ This is a great mystery, and I mean in reference to Christ and the church.
Ephesians 5:31-32
 
John Paul’s theology of the body not only paves the way for lasting renewal of marriage and the family; it enables everyone to rediscover “the meaning of the whole of existence, the meaning of life.”
George Weigel
 
Brace yourself! If we take in what the Holy Father is saying in his Theology of the Body, we will never view ourselves, view others, view the Church, the Sacraments, grace, God, heaven, marriage, the celibate vocation…we will never view the world the same way again.
Christopher West
