This talk is a great option for those who are new to Theology of the Body. Monica Ashour presents an overview of TOB using “the most important words in the universe: ‘This is My Body’!”
This recorded talk to adults includes the overarching concepts of St. Pope John Paul II and his Theology of the Body. This overview highlights the following concepts:
- the dignity and sanctity of the body-person, and defines what this is, in the context of the body and person as one;
- the complementary nature of masculine and feminine virtues;
- the sacredness of the body’s holy design, intended as a gift for others through vocation;
- how the body is like a sacrament and speaks its own language.
This talk serves as an introductory overview and is by no means comprehensive. For those wishing to understand the more complex, multi-faceted aspects of theology and philosophy which support this topic, there are more materials available via TOBET’s website.
