The Body as Sacrament

(Lvl 5 Book 1)

(2 customer reviews)


This book shows that through visible means, we can know the invisible reality of other persons and Jesus Christ.


Seeing the body as a sacrament helps students understand that their bodies are not tools or avatars. Viewing the human body in a sacramental way leads to knowing that a whole person is revealed by his or her body. This supports the idea of respecting oneself and others. This reality is reflected in the life of Jesus and in the seven sacraments of the Church.


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.
