The Catholic Herald has an article about the upcoming apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia:
Pope’s exhortation will focus on ‘dialogue’, says Vatican
At the end of the article we get this bit of news:
“[A reading guide] was sent to bishops along with summaries of the Pope’s recent Wednesday audiences on the family, and of John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, described as an ‘important source’ for Amoris Laetitia.”
Based on this, it appears that Theology of the Body is getting some of the attention it deserves. If every bishop is getting a copy, there will perhaps be a new emphasis on it, and so we’ll need to hone up our apologetics skills to defend Church teaching on human sexuality. Theology of the Body is a great resource for this. Let’s prepare, pray, and get excited!
