30: La Sagrada Familia – An Icon of Spousal Love”

This week, I am again delighted to present another guest “speaker,” Candida Kirkpatrick. Below is an adapted version of the talk she wrote on the “sacramentality of marriage” during our recent TOB Speaker Training. PLEASE NOTE: TOB TUESDAYS WILL BE TAKING A BREAK UNTIL SEPTEMBER. At that time, we will relaunch with a new format [...]

29: My Marriage Chaste? You’re Kidding Me!

I am thrilled to present a guest “speaker” this week, Sharon Wenger. Below is an adapted version of the talk she wrote and gave during the TOB Speaker Training that I facilitated in Phoenix last week. And if you are a benefactor of the St. JPII Resource Center for Theology of the Body and Culture [...]

28: Humanae Vitae and Celebrating the Lord’s Day

I am always intrigued by how each blog begins formulating in my mind. This week’s blog started as I was writing last week’s blog on maintaining the equilibrium between the unitive and procreative meanings of the conjugal act. The thought crossed my mind about how this aspect of Church teaching doesn’t apply to me since [...]

27: Reverent Eros and the Gift of Piety

For over 15 years I’ve wrestled with one line from St. John Paul II’s “Theology of the Body.” It’s this: “The link of purity with love, and the link of the same purity in love with piety as gift of the Holy Spirit, is a little-known guiding thread of the theology of the body, but [...]

26: The Ascension and the Fatherhood of God

[In honor of the Ascension this week, I dusted off an article I wrote years ago for Our Sunday Visitor. Enjoy!] The first time I ever met my spiritual director was on the Feast of the Ascension. He surprised me by saying this was his favorite feast day - even more than Christmas or Easter. [...]

25: Four Levels of Happiness + 1

It’s no secret that I love to dance salsa. As a result, many people ask me if I have a regular salsa partner. The answer is “no.” I simply show up at the salsa venues and hope (and pray!) that the good dancers will ask me to dance. My favorite salsa partner in San Diego [...]

24: Soul vs. Spirit

I was innocently reading 2 Corinthians Chapter 3 in my prayer time when a flood of insights started invading me. In this chapter, St. Paul speaks about the dispensation of the Spirit in contrast to the dispensation of the Law. It hit me that God’s eternal plan, the one hidden from eternity and revealed in [...]

23: Awesome Aussies and the Theology of the Body

(I apologize for the delay in posting this week’s blog. Due to severe jet lag along with needing permission from the Awesome Aussies I quote in this blog, it took longer than normal to get this blog ready for publication. Enjoy!) When it comes to the Theology of the Body (TOB), the U.S. Catholic Church [...]

21: “The Resurrection of Your Body” – Reposted

You may remember from last week’s blog that Katrina is spending time with the Aussie church Down Under. For this week, in honor of Easter, we’re re-posting blog #12 on “The Resurrection of Your Body.” We hope your “re-reading” of this blog in light of our rich liturgical celebration during Holy Week and Easter will [...]

20: The Priestly Language of the Masculine Body

As you read this, I will be somewhere over the Pacific Ocean on my way to Australia to speak on the Theology of the Body. During the 14-hour flight, I’m sure the “language of my body” will be quite challenged to be generously self-giving, which reminds me of another plane flight. Twenty years ago, I [...]
