Online conference explores fundamental questions of what it means to be human

John Paul II left behind a wealth of teachings and writings. These include his theology of the body, a collection of addresses on marriage, celibacy, love and what it means to be a human being.

Senior Lecturer, Theology of the Body Institute
“We're living in a culture right now that seems to be misunderstanding fundamental questions about what it means to be a person, what it means to be embodied. The importance of the two genders, of man and woman, the masculine and the feminine.”

That's why the Theology of the Body Institute is organizing it's second virtual conference on the topic. The conference will feature world-renowned speakers from all walks of life and will take place from April 30 to May 2.

Event Director, Theology of the Body Institute
“It doesn't matter if you're single or married or religious or not religious, or celibate or not celibate, or have a spicy past, or if you've always walked the straight and narrow. It does not matter. This teaching is here for you today.”

Singer songwriter Mike Mangione will be among the artists sharing their talents during the three-day event.

Event Director, Theology of the Body Institute
“Art has a great strength, the great strength of speaking well beyond words, using the material to reveal a truth of the human mystery: who am I, what am I, where am I going.”

And John Paul II's teachings continue to accompany countless people on that path of exploring some of life's biggest questions. In fact, over 77,000 people from more than 160 countries participated in the first virtual Theology of the Body Conference in 2020.
