How Does Theology of the Body Fit Into Church Tradition? (4103)

Part 2 of a Register symposium on Pope John Paul II's catechesis.

03/07/2011 Comment


One of the hallmarks of the Catholic faith is an authentic theological development. From the starting point of divine revelation (Scripture and Tradition), new insights into the meaning and implications of the faith are found, under the guidance of the magisterium.

Theology is “faith seeking understanding” (St. Anselm), so while the faith does not change, the Church’s understanding of it deepens.

At first glance, the theology of the body seems entirely new. Instead of studying the objective natures of things, as Catholic philosophers have traditionally done, it reflects on human experience, in order to discover the essential elements of experience as they appear in the consciousness of...READ MORE

40 Ways for These 40 Days (10378)

A Register editorial.

Well, we’re about to embark on Lent 2011: 40 days of prayer, penitence and self-mortification.

Will the next six weeks be filled with trepidation — How will I give something up for 40 days? — or determination — How do I prepare myself for Easter? Lent is supposed to be difficult, but not for difficulty’s sake. Just as we need Advent to prepare our hearts for Our Lord’s coming at Christmas, we need to prepare our hearts for his resurrection at Easter.

What follows are 40 ways to make your 40 days more fruitful. Above all, we should try to abandon the American I’ll-do-it-myself-thank-you-very-much approach and focus more on “being prepared by God.” Do this — setting things aside to listen...READ MORE

TORONTO — LifeSiteNews, the independent web-based pro-life and pro-family news service, is being sued by a Quebec priest for defamation.

LifeSite is headquartered in Toronto and has offices in the United States, Rome and Paris, but its audience is mostly in the U.S. and Canada. It has consistently called for Father Raymond Gravel — briefly a separatist member of the Canadian parliament — to either renounce his views on abortion and homosexuality or give up the priesthood.
Gravel has taught Bible studies and carries out pastoral ministry in the Diocese of Joliette, Quebec.

Now, Father Gravel is suing LifeSite, its five Canadian staffers, and Campaign Life Quebec and its former executive...READ MORE

It’s not just DOMA. It’s not just “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

The Obama administration is quickly distinguishing itself not only as the most pro-abortion administration ever, but also the most hostile to the traditional family.

President Obama said recently that he believes the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage for federal purposes as being between one man and one woman, is unconstitutional. He instructed his Justice Department to stop defending the legislation against lawsuits.

In fact, he has spoken in support of repealing the act, but his directive to the Justice Department comes just two months after Obama signed a bill repealing the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in...READ MORE

Theology of the Body (7085)

A Register symposium examines Pope John Paul II's rich catechesis.

03/06/2011 Comments (8)


Shortcuts can appear very enticing.

Society, particularly in the West, took a troubling shortcut in the middle of the 20th century.

The combination of secularism, materialism and hedonism led to a disturbing societal shift. At the time of the sexual revolution, society sidestepped the authentic meaning of both human life and married love. Dulled by sin and its effects, a lifestyle emerged that cast practical doubt on the meaning of the human body. Human meaning was equated with the mere satisfaction of appetites and cravings.

In the midst of this confusion, the catechesis of the Servant of God Pope John Paul II charted a new course. The theology of the body is his guide back from the...READ MORE
