Want to know the best part about working for The Kennedy Brownrigg Group? Our clients. I know it sounds cheesy, but we get to work with people like the Theology of the Body Institute whose mission is to “permeate the culture with a vision of true sexuality that appeals to the deepest yearnings of the human heart” – so yeah, we get a little sappy about that.
The Theology of the Body Institute is hosting it’s expansive Theology of the Body Congress. It’s a three day event that features all the best speakers, organizations and products to show you how Theology of the Body can change our culture and build up the family. This is not the first time we’ve worked on this event, and over the years, we’ve each come to personally appreciate the greatness of Theology of the Body more fully. Even if you’re not able to attend the Congress, you’ll want to join the conversation at #TOBtalk to glean the wisdom of experts and enthusiasts nationwide.
So in honor of this extraordinary event and to jump into #TOBtalk, we’ve picked our favorite quotes from JPII’s Theology of the Body. It was tough, but after many pots of coffee, we eventually narrowed it down. Enjoy!
Sherry Brownrigg, Senior Partner
“Man became the image and likeness of God not only through his own humanity, but also through the communion of persons which man and woman form right from the beginning.”
Kate Sell, Senior Partner
“Marriage is an act of will that signifies and involves a mutual gift which unites the spouses and binds them to their eventual souls, with whom they make up a whole family, the domestic church.”
Sarah Reinhard, Senior Marketing Strategist
“Man and woman constitute two different ways of the human ‘being a body’ in the unity of that image.”
Carrie Kline, Client Marketing Specialist
“The human body includes right from the beginning…the capacity of expressing love, that love in which the person becomes a gift – and by means of this gift – fulfills the meaning of his being and existence.”
Rachel Cooley, Director of Marketing
“Alone man does not completely realize this essence [of being a person]. He realizes it only by existing ‘with someone’ – and even more deeply and completely – by existing ‘for someone’…The communion of persons means existing in a mutual ‘for,’ in a relationship of mutual gift.”
