THEOLOGY OF THE BODY:
A Roadmap to Recovery
FR SEAN KILCAWLEY, STL
What Would Saint John Paul II say?
 “I think that among the answers that Christ would give to the people of
our times and to their questions, often so impatient, fundamental would
still be the one he gave to the Pharisees. In answering these questions,
Christ would appeal first of all to the “beginning.” He would perhaps do so
all the more decidedly and essentially, inasmuch as man’s inner and
simultaneously cultural situation seems to move away from that beginning
and assume forms and dimensions that diverge from the biblical image of
the “beginning” to points that are evidently ever more distant.
 Wednesday Audience April 2, 1980
Christ points us to the beginning
 Matthew 19:3-8
 The question of the Pharisees
 “Christ does not accept the discussion on the level on which his
interlocutors try to introduce it; in a sense, he does not approve the
dimension they tried to give the problem.”
 He points back to the beginning
 “’The beginning’ signifies therefore what Genesis speaks about”
 Goal: accompanying, so to speak, from afar the work in preparation for the
synod, not, however by directly touching the topic, but by turning
attention to the deep roots from which this topic springs
Redemptor Hominis 10
10 . The human dimension of the mystery of the Redemption
Man cannot live without love. He remains a being that is
incomprehensible for himself, his life is senseless, if love is
not revealed to him, if he does not encounter love, if he does
not experience it and make it his own, if he does not
participate intimately in it.
The Devil’s Plan- Attack on
Communion and Love at all levels
“Simon, Simon, behold Satan has
demanded to sift all of you like wheat, but
I have prayed that your own faith may not
fail; and once you have turned back, you
must strengthen your brethren.” (Lk 22:31-
32).

Imago Trinitatis
 “The real God is by his very nature entirely being-for (Father), being-from
(Son), and being-with(Holy Spirit). Man, for his part, is God’s image
precisely insofar as the “from,” “with,” and “for” constitute the fundamental
anthropological pattern. Whenever we attempt to free ourselves from this
pattern, we are not on our way to divinity, but to dehumanization, to the
destruction of being itself through the destruction of the truth.” Joseph
Ratzinger, Truth and Freedom.
Benedict XVI
 The family is the place where the theology of the body and the theology of
love intersect. Here we learn the goodness of the body, its witness to an
Origin that is good, in the experience of love that we receive from our
parents. Here the gift of self in one flesh is lived out in the conjugal charity
that joins the spouses. Here the fecundity of love is experienced and our
life is interwoven with that of other generations. It is in the family that man
discovers his relationality, not as a self-actualized, autonomous individual,
but as a child, a spouse, a parent, whose identity is founded on being
called to love, to receive himself from others and to give himself to others.
