Blog: Theology of the Body
Sister Elizabeth Geraghty, CSJ, coordinator of Project Rachel for the diocesan Respect Life Office, shares reflections on the Theology of the Body. The Theology of the Body is a series of addresses given by Pope John Paul II at his Wednesday papal audiences in Rome from September 1979 to November 1984. The Theology of the Body is made up of 129 individual addresses, divided into six different cycles. These addresses present an in-depth biblical explanation of the mystery of marriage and human sexuality.
