INTRO

INTRODUCTION

During his pontificate from 1979 to 1984, Saint Pope John Paul the Great gave to the world, a deeper understanding of the mysterious gift of our human dignity, created in the image of God as both male and female. Our goal at TheologyOfTheBodyFrorFamilies.org is twofold: first, to help you easily understand our late Pope's teachings on the Theology of the Body; and second, to take what you've learned and integrate it into a way of life that respects each person's dignity and purity.

The most efficacious way of putting this information to work for your family is based on nearly 2,000 years of official Catholic teachings on human sexuality. In short, Family Chastity Formation in Virtue and Purity of Heart. The two go hand-in-hand and are interdependent. Our goal is to provide you with a two-pronged approach: to become familiar with Church teachings on the subject and to bootstrap the wisdom of parents.

EVERYONE

The formation in love is a lifelong process that begins even before birth and ends at death when the soul returns home to the Father.

Each person is unique and unrepeatable. The information provided in Theology of the Body for Families is nothing other than a way of life that will insure the proper formation of personality: who we are, what we believe and stand for, how we act and treat other people, and most of all, how we love. It touches on the secrets of our very nature and involves the most intimate nucleus of our body and soul.

This information is for EVERYONE.

SINGLES & YOUNG ADULTS

The foundations of a successful education in love should be essentially complete by the time the young adult is ready to leave home in order to discover and fulfill God's personal calling in life. Even as strict obedience to father and mother is no longer demanded, as in earlier years, gratitude towards and honoring one's parents by receiving their advice, counsel, and blessing in choosing a vocation in life is.

This chapter is primarily for SINGLE PEOPLE, YOUNG ADULTS, ENGAGED or MARRIED.

Engaged or Married

ENGAGED OR MARRIED

It is important for those called to the vocation of married love to mutually decide upon a lifetime vision for their marriage and family, which, like true north on a compass, will remain constant and provide certain direction in the vicissitudes encountered on the journey of life together. This “true north” will provide stability to your decision-making process and to the daily choices you will inevitably be called upon to make on a myriad of subjects. The best time to formulate your lifetime vision, or true north, is before you set out on the journey, that is, during the periods of courtship and engagement.

This chapter is primarily for people who are in COURTSHIP, ENGAGED or MARRIED.

CHURCH & OTHER EDUCATORS

The role of the Church and State is first and foremost to assist parents directly by providing them with an authentic education in God’s plan for sexuality and by giving them support and confidence in their ability to fulfill their vocation as the primary educators of their children.

Parents must remember that they have the primary right to oversee the education their children receive when they allow other people or institutions to assist them, especially in the area of human sexuality.

This chapter is primarily for everyone who is comtemplating MARRIAGE, is MARRIED, or is a VOLUNTEER or PROFESSIONAL EDUCATOR.
