God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage is a marriage preparation supplement that offers engaged couples a more complete understanding of GodÂ’s glorious plan for marriage and human sexuality than perhaps any program available in the Church today. Based on Blessed John Paul IIÂ’s Theology of the Body, this supplement is intended to enhance a key component of marriage preparation: catechesis in the theology of marriage and the gift of human sexuality.
The Holy Father teaches that human lifeÂ’s dignity and balance depends at every moment on Â“who woman will be for man and who man will be for woman.Â” GodÂ’s plan of life and love is literally stamped in our bodies. Here, you will find a much-needed testimony to the essential interrelation between love, life, and sexuality, and discover how a deep appreciation for this interrelation is the path to a blessed and joy-filled marriage.
The Theology of the Body has been called Â“one of the boldest reconfigurations of Catholic Theology in centuries,Â” according to George Weigel, the popeÂ’s official biographer. It addresses some of the most fundamental and important questions of human existence, including:
Why were we created male and female?
Where do we come from and why?
What is the meaning of life? How do we experience it?
Why is there evil in the world and how do we overcome it?
The GodÂ’s Plan workbook and the DVD series are perfect for Marriage Prep classes or for use as a supplement with an existing Pre-Cana program. This Starter Kit includes:
