In Conversation with God:

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword…

We need… heralds of the Gospel who are experts in humanity, who know the depths of the heart of man… who share in his hopes and joys, his worries and his sadness…

Living Liturgy for Cantors:

In what way… might you let Christ take possession of you… so that you can sing of… hope with conviction?


… ever had a cut but you never saw a blade… the burden of a tear hanging in your eye… a scar across the sky, you were looking for a king, you would never recognize Jesus in disguise… so open my eyes, wide as i can, blind as i am…

ToB #69 ~ New Threshold of Complete Truth About Man

In his original situation man… is revealed to himself as a person, in order to reveal, at the same time, the communion of persons in the unity of the two.

In both states the human being is constituted as an image and likeness of God…

In the unity of the couple he… discover[s] the nuptial meaning of his body as a personal subject…

Subsequently, the meaning of being a body and, in particular, being male and female in the body, is connected with marriage and procreation…

However, the original and fundamental significance of being a body, as well as being, by reason of the body, male and female—that is precisely that nuptial significance—is united with the fact that man is created as a person and called to a life in communione personarum. 

Marriage and procreation in itself do not determine definitively the original and fundamental meaning of being a body or of being, as a body, male and female. Marriage and procreation merely give a concrete reality to that meaning in the dimensions of history.
