In partnership with Catholic Youth Ministry, Perth, this course is aimed at young adults and those interested in learning the Church’s deep and inspiring understanding of sexuality and sexual ethics. It will focus on Saint Pope John Paul II’s book Love and Responsibility, which arose from his pastoral care of young people, couples preparing for marriage and married couples. The idea behind the book was to assist people in maturing their “eros” from attraction, to romantic love and to true friendship, to the surrender of self in spousal love. We will discuss JPII’s concept of the primacy of the person in love, the sexual drive as part of our personhood, dealing with shame, the true meaning of chastity, and living justice in marriage. A light supper will be provided.
