Theology of the Body Study Day

Published 8th of December 2018

The Theology of the Body, proposed by Pope St John Paul II, has been described as one of the boldest reconfigurations of Catholic theology in centuries" and as a "kind of theological time bomb set to go off with dramatic consequences, sometime in the third millennium of the Church.

On 1 December at the University of Nottingham (jointly organised by the Marriage and Family Life Commission and the University Catholic Chaplaincy) we met for an exploration of this fascinating and challenging understanding of life.

"If we take in what the Holy Father is saying in his Theology of the Body, we will never view ourselves, view others, view the Church, the Sacraments, grace, God, heaven, marriage, the celibate vocation...we will never view the world the same way again".
