Holy Cross College is hosting Christopher West on Friday, February 18 at 7 p.m. for a presentation of "God, Sex and the Meaning of Life: An Evening of Reflection on Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body."
According to Campus Ministry at HCC, "The world is sated with sex, but remains starved for love. Maybe it's because we've kicked God out of the bedroom ...On Friday February 18th 2011, renowned "theologian of the body" Christopher West will help demonstrate that the Church's teaching on sex is not a prudish list of prohibitions imposed on us from "without," but is a message of true liberation that wells up from "within." The truth about sex is the truth about love, and the truth about love reveals the meaning of life for which we're all looking. With wit and wisdom -- drawing from John Paul II's Theology of the Body, as well as insight found in popular music, movies, and viral videos -- West explores how the Church’s teaching on sex corresponds perfectly with the deepest desires of the human heart."
Live performances by folk-rock act Mike Mangione & The Union will accompany West's presentation. Their dynamic, expressive sound and soul-searching lyrical themes provide a poetic backdrop for this evening of reflection on God, Sex, and the Meaning of Life.
