Saint John Paul II’s masterwork, the Theology of the Body (TOB), provides beautiful and compelling answers to the deepest questions we all ask ourselves: Who am I? Why am I here? How can I be happy? Why do I experience all these deep longings in my body and soul and what am I to do with them? What is my ultimate destiny and how do I get there?
In the midst of the profound sexual crisis that is wreaking havoc in both the secular world and in the Church, the TOB offers the hope of healing and restoration we all so desperately need, enabling everyone to rediscover not only the meaning of our creation as male and female, but through that, “the meaning of the whole of existence, the meaning of life” (TOB 46:6).
The full TOB text, Man & Woman He Created Them: A Theology of the Body, is available HERE.
Christopher West’s full-length commentary, Theology of the Body Explained, is available HERE.
Courage is a Roman Catholic apostolate for men and women who experience same-sex attractions and those who love them.
