Title: AND THE TWO BECOME ONE: UNITY, THE EUCHARIST, AND GOD'S PLAN FOR MARITAL LOVE
This single talk is considered one of Christopher West's most succinct introductions to the theology of the body. Christopher shows how Christ reveals the nature of God's love through the gift of his body in the Eucharist and how the communion of man and woman participates in Christ's Eucharistic self- giving. You will learn how the four elements of the marriage commitment - to love freely, totally, faithfully, and fruitfully - provide the key for understanding all questions of sexual morality. This talk makes a great gift for those who might we intimidated by Christopher's more extensive presentations. Christopher West believes that just as marriage is the bedrock of civilization, the Eucharist is the bedrock of our faith - it's the most specific point of our unity between God and man. Our faithful reception of the Eucharist keeps us bound to Christ. Similarly, the faithful union of man and woman - through renewal of wedding vows in marital love - is a mean of strengthening the unity between the couple.
