Catholic Moral Teaching and Theology of the Body

In a 30 minutes talk, Dr. Peter J. Colosi, Associate Professor of Moral Theology at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, Philadelphia, PA, paints a picture of the cultural situation, explaining the meaning of Pope Emeritus Benecit XVI’s phrase “the tyranny of relativism.” He shows how it differs from but also follows directly on the heels of basic relativism, illustrating the point with striking current examples in the US. He then outlines connections between all of this and the reason to study and interiorize John Paul II’s Theology of Body. He also touches on questions of Christian witness in the public sphere and true and false meanings of the phrase “separation of Church and State.”

Dr. Colosi delivered this talk on June 14, 2013 in Fatima, Portugal at the IV Theology of the Body International Symposium.
