Quarryville, PA

Taught by Christopher West

*Prerequisites: Theology of the Body I: Head & Heart Immersion Course

Registration now open

Course Description:

This course examines the implications of John Paul II’s Theology of the Body for the “new evangelization.”  It will first outline a plan for ecclesial and cultural renewal based on John Paul II’s Apostolic Letter Novo Millennio Inuente and then study the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church through the lens of John Paul II’s spousal theology.  In the process, this course will demonstrate in practical terms how the TOB is not only a teaching on marriage and sexual love, but has implications for all of theology and provides a compelling way to present the Gospel message itself to the modern world.
