What the Halifax is Theology of the Body?
As a 'traditionalist' I have occasionally been confronted and confused by the 'Theology of the Body' or ToB.
Firstly, the ToB body of knowledge (ToBBok) is based upon a series of Angelus talks given by Pope St. John Paul II.
Secondly, is it a binding teaching of the Church of Christ ... nope see Ite Ad Thomam link below.
Thirdly, what the heck is it?
See remnant references and Wiki. Whatever StJP2 intended, the talks are simply used to continue to invert the priorities of marriage by exchanging procreation with conjugal love.
This obviously is my opinion and if anyone can provide a succinct explanation - please provide a comment.
Explanation of 'consultants': Whenever something is ambiguous or difficult to understand (more often the former than the latter) it engenders a cottage industry of people who make a living explaining the topic.
