Called to Love: Theology of the Body
January 11, 2017

(6:30pm - 8:30pm)
This course studies John Paul II’s Man and Woman He Created Them: A Theology of the
Body—his “Wednesday catecheses”—through a reading of the text and a discussion of
his scriptural, theological, and philosophical methodology. It shows how the dual unity
of man and woman and their interpersonal communion, even in the body, image divine
trinitarian life. Special emphasis will be made on the foundations of the Theology of
the Body in the Christian tradition. The course will draw also on other works by John
Paul II that deal with marriage and the family, such as The Jeweler’s Shop, Love and
Responsibility, and the Roman Triptych.

This course can be taken toward renewal requirements for VCEA licensure. Numerous
high schools in the Archdiocese of Washington accept the course for CEU credits.
