  • 1. OLOP|YA The Bouillon Cubes Sex and the Meaning of Existence 1 1a. What we learn is obviously “important in regards to marriage.” However it “Is equally essential… for the understanding of man in general: for the… self-comprehension of his being in the world” (TB, 352-353 Sex and the Meaning of Existence 2 1b. Though it focuses on sexual love, the theology of the body affords “the rediscovery of the meaning of the whole of existence, the meaning of life” (TB, 168) The Fundamental Element of Existence in the World 1c. The call to communion inscribed in our sexuality is “the fundamental element of human existence in the world.” (TB, 16) “the foundation of human life” (EA, n. 46), and hence, “the deepest substratum of human ethics and culture” (TB, 163). Culture Wars 1d. “It is an illusion to think we can build a true culture of human life if we do not… accept and experience sexuality and love and the whole of life according to their true meaning and their close inter-connection” (EV, n. 97) The Sacramentality of the Body 2a. “As a being at once body and spirit, man expresses and perceives spiritual realities through physical signs and symbols” (CCC, n. 1146) The Logic of Christianity 2b. “Through the fact that the Word of God became flesh the body entered theology… through the main door” (TB, 89) The MOAB: Mother of All Boullion Cubes 2c. “The body, and in fact, it alone, is capable of making visibile what is invisible: the spiritual and divine. It was created to transfer into the visible reality of the world, the mystery hidden since time immemorial in God, and thus to be a sign of it” (TB, 76). The Innermost Secret of God 3a. “God has revealed his innermost secret: God himself is an eternal exchange of love, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and he has destined us to share in that eternal exchange of Love” (CCC, n. 221). The Banquet that Satisfies 3c. Understanding the true meaning of the body and sexuality “concerns the entire Bible” (TB, 249). It plunges us into the perspective of the whole Gospel, of the whole teaching, in fact, of the whole mission of Christ” (TB, 175). The Eyes to See God created sexuality to reveal to us, His mystery of love to the world.
