Transcript

  • 1. Questions to Ponder<br />Have you conceived of heaven as a place of liberation from the “prison” of the body? Where does this serious error come from?<br />What is the initial reaction to Christ’s teaching that there will be no marriage in heaven?<br />Why is marriage not the ultimate fulfillment of love like so many songs and stories seem to indicate?<br />How does marriage point beyond itself to our communion with God in heaven?<br />What does it mean to say that all the sexual confusion in the world today is the human desire for heaven gone berserk?<br />
  • 2. Bl. John Paul in TOB focuses on the state of man at different times in the History of Salvation<br /> Origin Brokenness after Destiny <br /> Original Sin<br />
  • 3. In the Beginning it was not so<br />Divorce<br />Rape<br />Lust<br />Homosexuality<br />
  • 4. Do we think of the body as trapped in the soul?<br />
  • 5. Do we really have a New Age view of the Body?<br />
  • 6. Christ said “in heaven there will be no marriage.”Matthew 22What does this mean?<br />
  • 7. Marital love can not give us ultimate fulfillment<br />Princess Diana and Prince Charles<br />
  • 8. The holiness of marriage will continue in heaven<br />St. Joachim & St. Anne<br />Their relationship continues in heaven<br />
  • 9. Marriage as sacrament points beyond itself<br />
  • 10. The Resurrection of the body fulfills the meaning of our bodies<br />
  • 11. Bl. John Paul II’s argument that the true fulfillment our spousal love will only be realized in heaven<br />Look at point 3g. There is an argument here. (See TOB 68.4)<br />The argument runs thus<br />Our original solitude reveals to us that we are unfulfilled without another person<br />The original unity of man and woman points toward an interpersonal desire for another<br />Therefore <br />we have an interpersonal desire to be fulfilled in another<br />The spousal meaning of the body, the love between man and woman, is not the ultimate fulfillment of our interpersonal desires<br />The Triune love of God is the ultimate form of interpersonal love<br />Therefore,<br />Our participation of the Triune love of God in heaven will be the ultimate fulfillment of our interpersonal longings for another.<br />
  • 12. Call of God to participate in His life<br />1. God is gift<br />2. The nature of sin is to deny the gift<br />3. The nature of our redemption is that the gift is fully revealed in the Body of Christ given for us.<br />4. The nature of faith is to open the human heart to God’s gift. <br />(Quoted from Introduction to the Theology of the Body Video, Chris West, session 5 Ascension Press 2008).<br />
  • 13. The Eucharist gives us a foretaste of the resurrection of the body<br />
  • 14. What does the Blessed Virgin Mary’s assumption mean for our bodies?<br />
