The first lesson builds a foundation for living TOB daily through the gift of self (giving, receiving, and fruitfulness), holiness (bodily actions united with a well-formed conscience), and the language of the body (certain bodily actions mean certain things). Then, these basic TOB concepts are applied to the area of sexuality in an age-appropriate way. Teens then understand the “whys” behind the “whats” of the Church’s teachings about the sacredness of marital love according to God’s design for the human person. Purity allows us to live out our vocations effectively and imitate the lives of Jesus and Mary who loved all people freely, fully, faithfully, and fruitfully.
The Theology of the Body is a positive, beautiful approach to the truth of the body and its meaning. In a culture where the body is considered “an enemy to freedom,” Saint John Paul’s Theology of the Body is necessary more than ever. The Body Matters lesson books series teaches the truths about the body in an accessible, age-appropriate way. It is a great resource for parents, Faith Formation programs and Catholic schools to help children see the sacredness of the body. Here you can find Saint John Paul’s teachings on the body rendered in language accessible to children, with beautiful illustrations, practical examples and solid Catholic theology.
