The Body and Reverence


Level 3, Book 2

This book teaches that reverence is the proper response to God’s imprint in a person, object, moment, or experience.


This book teaches how the mysteries of creation awaken wonder and awe in humans. Wonder draws us in; awe holds us back. If we respond with reverence, we enter more deeply into beauty, friendships and love. Distraction, and the need to control oppose reverence and rob us of love. Jesus in the Eucharist deserves our greatest reverence.


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,” an enemy which prohibits someone from being able to choose their gender or sexual expression, 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.
