    First Topic – Freedom: Twelve Lives Transformed By the Theology of the Body

    God has revealed His mystery of love through the Word made flesh Theology of the Body. This phrase is not only the title of a series of talks by the late John Paul II - It represents the very logic of Christianity. The Theology of the Body calls us to encounter the living, Incarnate Christ and to ponder how His body reveals the meaning of our bodies. John Paul II’s teaching appeals to many different kinds of people: married, single, consecrated celibates, professionals, and stay-at-home moms. And it’s not just for Catholics either. We talk to Matt Pinto about Freedom: Twelve Lives Transformed By the Theology of the Body.

    Second Topic – Real Women, Real Saints: Friends for Your Spiritual Journey

    Heaven's doors are wide open and God is doing everything he can to make us all into saints. What would it take for you to become a saint? If you're thinking of quiet cloisters and hours in undisturbed prayer, think again. Real women who became real saints run the gamut from quiet to boisterous, single, married, divorced, post-abortive, social activists, hermits, academics, doctors and more. Among these women there is a friend for you, someone even a bit like you. Sanctity will never fit into a formula, but the women who have become canonized saints have this in common: their deep love for God and the determination to live life in harmony with his will. Gina Loehr is here to help us learn to abandon ourselves to God, and live a rich, full life in return – becoming Saints!
