A course on the meaning of marriage and family, sex and sexuality, and what it means to be man and woman. The Catholic vision is based on an historical perspective primarily through the philosophical and theological lenses of Blessed Pope John Paul II.
A fundamental look at the meaning of human love, especially the love between husband and wife—the paradigm, on this earth, of the self-gifted love within the Trinity.
Includes discussion from the following works:
(1) Edith Stein’s “The Vocations of Man and Woman According to Nature and Grace” (a foreshadowing of John Paul II’s Wednesday talks on the original unity of man and woman)
(2) John Paul II’s Redemptor Hominis (Redeemer of Man), Theology of the Body, and Familiaris Consortio (Exhortation on the Family in the Modern World)
3) Michael Waldstein’s introduction to the 3rd edition of the Theology of the Body, Man and Woman He Created Them
(4) Paul VI’s Humanae Vitae
(5) Dietrich von Hildebrand’s Marriage, the Mystery of Faithful Love.
