The heart is the battleground between love and concupiscence, so we must discern the sources of the various attractions in our hearts. Natural Law and God’s Revelation should guide this discernment and lead us to form what St. John Paul called the “ethos of the heart,” that is, an owning of our Faith through our daily choices and bodily actions. As we fight the good fight, we might stumble, but Jesus’ mercy can always restore our integrity.
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.
