Eclipse of the Body: How We Lost the Meaning of Sex, Gender, Marriage, & Family (And How to Reclaim It)

Front Cover
Totus Tuus Press, Jun 14, 2018 - Religion - 80 pages

 The world is experiencing an eclipse of the meaning of the body. 


The definitions of boy and girl, masculinity and femininity, husband and wife, and mother and father have been obscured, and a shadow of confusion has been cast over gender, marriage, sex, and the family. Everything has been re-defined, and yet none of the new definitions are definite. 


Where did this come from—and more importantly—what needs to happen for the meaning of the body to become clear again? 


In this easy-to-read booklet, you’ll discover what lies at the root of today’s sexual chaos and gender confusion, and how it was foretold more than a century ago. You’ll also learn how Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body provides the antidote to the crisis of our times and paves the way for the “Triumph” foretold by the Virgin Mary in Fatima.
