In my travels around the world sharing Saint John Paul II's Theology of the Body, I am witnessing the growth of a genuine international movement. But with new forms of sexual chaos and gender confusion spreading like wildfire, the need to continue sharing the healing balm of the Theology of the Body is more urgent than ever.
The Cor Project has been invited by Church leaders in South Africa to bring Saint John Paul II's liberating teachings to multiple cities in their country in early September.
We have accepted the invitation, which includes making several presentations to the public, as well as to clergy, religious and seminarians. However, their funds are extremely limited, and they have asked us to make up the difference. We have stepped out in faith that the Lord will provide for our needs through those who understand the importance of our mission.
The Cor Project's mission is to spread the Theology of the Body across the globe, so this is an opportunity we don't want to pass up. There are other similar opportunities we have had to decline due to financial limitations, so any donations beyond this goal will allow us to revisit those invitations.
In return for helping us, we have some great rewards to offer you! (Physical items will be mailed upon completion of the campaign to those who provide addresses within the U.S. , Canada and Mexico.)
Thank you for sharing in our mission to learn, live and share the Theology of the Body!
