For those you who have read/heard/studied anything about , you probably know how much potential it has to change peoples' lives. For those you who haven't studied any , I highly reccomend it - especially if you are married or are preparing for marriage.
John Paul II shows through his teaching that meaning life is to love others as Christ loves us - through a total donation self, through agape love. Agape love is always free, total, faithful, and fruitful. He shows us how our , when we use it way that God intended us to, makes this mystery love visible to world.
girls in my small group are, in a word, AMAZING. I have learned so much from them. The picture is of our group presenting/giving their testimonies to a youth group who is starting Theology of the Body for teens. They are passionate about sharing God's original plan for love with others. How refreshing! These women God are truly future church - I believe that their evangelization will change people's hearts for Christ. Praise God for way that he is working in them!
"It is Jesus in fact that you seek when you dream happiness, he is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; he is beauty to which you are so attracted; it is he who provokes you with that thirst for fulness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is he who urges you to shed masks a false life; it is he who reads in your hearts your most genuine choices, choices that others try to stifle. It is Jesus who stirs in you desire to do something great with your lives, will to follow an ideal, refusal to allow yourselves to be grounded down by mediocrity, courage to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and society, making world more human and more fraternal."
