The Relation of Theology of the Body to the History of Church teaching on Marriage, Family and Human Sexuality

by

In this talk my goal is to show how Theology of the Body is a fruit and development of and in continuity with the past and remains an indispensable resource for the present call to present the Joy of the Gospel. From St. Augustine to Pope Francis, Saints, Popes and Doctors of the Church have all commented on the meaning of Marriage, Family and Human Sexuality. The particular historical realities of each epoch have shaped the approach of each such commentary, while the unifying goal has been to clarify the truth in order to help the faithful experience God’s plan fully. I delivered this talk at the 2014 International Theology of the Body Congress which was hosted by the Theology of the Body Institute in Philadelphia. This talk and all of the talks from that event were recorded by Ascension Press and CDs can be purchased there.
