Although we have many new items this week, we want to take this opportunity to tell you about an important new book by bestselling Catholic author and lecturer Christopher West.
If you are already familiar with John Paul II's Theology of the Body, you will delight in the new material in this book. If not, this book serves as a superb introduction to John Paul's revolutionary teaching and is certain to whet your appetite for more!
This book, which will be released in September, in paperback, as is available for pre-order now for only $14.99.
Heaven's Song: Sexual Love as It Was Meant to Be, is a journey through the “hidden” talks that Pope John Paul II gave on the Theology of the Body. These undelivered addresses, recently discovered in the Papal archives, contain the late Holy Father's unedited reflections on the love poetry of the Song of Songs and the Old Testament marriage of Tobias and Sarah.
This exciting “new” material – deemed “too delicate” to be delivered in St. Peter's Square – allows men and women in every state of life to discover the “great mystery” of their sexuality as God created it to be: as a revelation of His own life and love.
As many saints and mystics testify, the Song of Songs, like no other book in the Bible, provides aa mystical glimpse into the depths of God's passionate love for us. In order to “enter into” the divine depths of this love poetry, however, we must be “transformed by the renewal of our minds' (Romans 12:2). With profound insight into the mind of Pope John Paul II, author Christopher West demonstrates how union with God passes by way of sexual healing and redemption, even for those who are living the celibate vocation in the Church.
As always, thanks for reading and we hope you have a wonderful week. God bless.
