I am working hard on my “That’s nice dear” responses to my newly baptized Catholic daughter, but I would love to get an opinion from someone about her latest passion.
She was very excited to attend a “Theology of the Body” lecture by someone named Christopher West. I asked her what it was all about and the best answer she gave me was it was about the Catholic position on “the human person”, as Pope John Paul described it. When I looked online, I found Christopher West is a teacher at the Theology of the Body Institute. It all sounds really bizarre to me, and more about what the Catholic church want people to believe about sex. Does anyone have any insight about what this is all about?
She has also started telling me that she might just want to devote herself to a spiritual life and not get married or have a family. Again, I try to just say very little other than “that’s interesting”. To be honest, it’s driving me crazy, so I am back on the forum to get a reality check.
