Special Gift from TOB Institute for your End of Year Donation! Now through December 6th, contribute $100 or more to the TOB Institute and you will receive a free copy of “The 13th Day,” the story of Fatima.

This new film is currently sweeping the nation at special screenings across the country. TOBI donors will receive a special copy of this film on DVD, which is a beautiful and artistic retelling of the true events at Fatima in 1917. Here is a preview:

Kevin Whelan’s Catholic Exchange column from Oct. 6:

Last week there were three significant ’sex scandal’ stories: the attempted blackmail of TV star David Letterman, the attempted extradition of film maker Roman Polanski, and the admission of an affair by U.S. Senator John Ensign. I listened with only passing interest to some of the coverage of these stories. I found some of the commentary a bit more interesting: Is Hollywood’s Defense of Polanski Justified?, Isn’t Polanski’s Crime Worse than Letterman’s?, Isn’t Ensign’s Greatest Infraction His Hypocrisy?

Then on Saturday evening as I started gathering the family for our weekly discussion of the Sunday readings, I reviewed the readings for the 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time and was motivated to declare it “Theology of the Body Sunday” – at least in my house. I explained to my children that the “TOB Sunday” designation was totally compatible with “Respect Life Sunday.” The first reading (Genesis 2: 18-24) and the Gospel reading (Mark 10: 2-16) are two of the chief texts cited in John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. While others may speculate on the amazing tapestry woven by God to bring all these events to our attention, I looked at it from a more parochial point of view: we’ve got a lot of work to do.

Sr. Miriam James Heidland recalls her experience learning about the Theology of the Body at the TOB Institute this September:

The Head and Heart Immersion Course completely blew me away and rocked me to my very foundation. After spending the week immersed in Christopher’s genuine and passionate presentation of John Paul II’s transformational teaching, I am CONVINCED that theology of the body will heal the world. This is because theology of the body reminds us that Christ, the Bridegroom, is the ultimate answer to all the brokenness we face in this world. Christ is the answer to healing hearts, restoring dignity and setting all of humanity free to truly love because Christ is God who is love! The course helped me fall in love with Jesus all over again. I am so excited that “there is always more” with our Lord. I have never felt more strengthened in my own vocation as a Bride of Christ and my call to love.
