John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and Living the Gospel of Life
In this 2012 presentation, HLI President Father Shenan J. Boquet speaks about John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and how it is an important resource in understanding God’s plan for marriage, family, and society.
The Theology of the Body was given by the pope as a response to the attack on human sexuality and the family by secular forces that he saw were out to destroy the understanding of God’s plan for them.
