He just talked about one flesh union between man and woman, AND between us and God (can you say Eucharist?).
He referenced marriage as life giving...which JPII called the 'fruitful' quality of the sexual union.
The other thing he said was cool was calling out people who are 'church-goers' and those who are Christians.
Church-goers hear the Word. Christians live the Word.
Church-goers desire courage. Christians live in courage.
Church-goers want to trust in God's love and faithfulness. Christians live in that trust.
We humans are wired for life. When we live in the Word, when we live in trust, when we live in courage, we are free, total, faithful, fruitful.
Thank you John Paul the Great!
I had no idea this would be such a big deal: the huge crowd (the sanctuary seats 5,000 people...it will be close to capacity for sure), the news trucks, the protestors.
So, what's a good Catholic boy like me doing at a mega-church event like this?
I want to get more info. I want to see what people's reactions are to this whole issue. I want to see the presentation (which you can see from the pic above...that's Miles McPhearson talking).
I'll write more later (I love mobile blogging)....
