A Penitent Blogger

Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?
Recordare, Iesu pie, Quod sum causa tuae viae: Ne me perdas illa die...

Theology of the Body

Domenico Bettinelli posts about a May 12 seminar in the Archdiocese of Boston by Christopher West, a writer and speaker whom he highly recommends and who focuses on the great Pope John Paul II's "Theology of the Body"

Mr. Bettinelli touts Mr. West as being very helpful for his own marriage preparations and says that:

"If more people understood John Paul’s particular approach to this subject and the transformative effects it can have on one’s ideas of marriage, family life, sexuality, and God’s own divine fecundity, we might see our society — which is so screwed up in this area — start to get its head right."

Those not in the Boston area may want to take advantage of other opportunities around the country, including the following (details posted on www.christopherwest.com)
