This book teaches how a person is to receive his or her body as a gift from God. Then, he or she—through his or her body—gives and receives gifts (and is itself a gift)! Through the senses, the body receives gifts like music, the sacraments, and birthday presents. A person also gives gifts such as hugs, homeruns, and helping with chores. God gives everyone life and love, which means that the body itself is a gift from the greatest Gift-Giver. Our bodies are gifts to be given to others. Understanding their giftedness transforms children’s lives.
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.
