Theology of the Body - Decoded

According to the Holy Father, "Those who seek the accomplishment of their own human and Christian vocation in marriage are called, first of all, to make this 'theology of the body' . . . the content of their life and behavior" (April 2, 1980).
Here we are giving you a small picture as what the Theology of the Body is all about.
This article has 11 pictures that are linked to each other. So go down nice and slow, read through and understand what each picture is trying to tell.

So here we go. .
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
1. Who is GOD?

2 . . Why adam and eve? and what's the mystery all about?

3 . . How do we share that love with God ?
4 . . But . .

5 . . This is where Our Pope Brings our Beloved Jesus to the Picture!
He says Jesus is the Groom and The Church is the bride! Didn't get it right?

6 . . So the relationship between Jesus and the Church is ??

7 . . What about Mother Mary ?

8 . . So that means ?

9 . . So SEX is ?

10 . .But again the enemy !

11. . But the Choice is ours!

We hope you got a rough idea what the Former Pope was trying to tell. The theology of the Body has such depth, it would take ages to understand the complete chapter. We live in a world where love has no meaning. But if we think and hold our hands together, we can mold the coming generation as God wants the world to be. So lets pray to the Lord asking to purify our minds, our bodies and our souls. And also to safeguard us from any kind of evil.

As John Paul II says " Marriage is an act of will that signifies and involves a mutual gift, which unites the spouses and binds them to their eventual souls, with whom they make up a sole family - a domestic church". Lets stand together as one and represent the church and bind together with one and only God, Our Lord, Jesus Christ.

God Bless you all. :)
