The Institution of Marriage – A First Look

This is the fourth of a series of articles outlining Pope St. John Paul II’s thought on human embodiment and sexuality. You can read the third installment here. ‘The very “core” of choosing a person must be personal.’ (Love and Responsibility, 116) Spousal love is realized in the mutual choice of lovers, whereby two unique and unrepeatable human individuals, a man and woman, come to belong to one another in a permanent and stable bond.

This is untrue, since Christian morality consists, in the simplicity of the Gospel, in following Jesus Christ, in abandoning oneself to him, in letting oneself be transformed by his grace and renewed by his mercy, gifts which come to us in the living communion of his Church.\" Veritatis Splendor, 119 The 25th anniversary of Pope Saint John Paul\'s prophetic document, Veritatis Splendor, will be at the center of an upcoming formation event for clergy, religious, and professionals who minister to persons who experience same-sex attractions (SSA) and gender dysphoria. The event, which will focus on the theme \"Proclaiming the splendor of truth with love\", will feature presentations from acclaimed theologians, including Dr. Janet Smith, Dr. Mary Healy, and Fr. Paul Sullins. ...
