Theology of the Body and What it Means to be Human is an exploration of Pope St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body which is at the core of what it means to be human. In our over-sexualized culture, we have lost our way when it comes to love, sex, marriage and God’s truth. This program will examine why God made us the way He did and what His plan is for us. We will shine a light on our current culture and see why God’s truth is the remedy we need to find true happiness. Join us for what can truly be a life-changing experience!
"How Art Shapes Culture" - Ep22 of Naked Without Shame
Megan and Morgan talk about the importance of art and its ability to shape our vision of the human person as gift. John Paul II says in the Theology of the Body that art sharpens our human sensibilities. Artists in and through their art shape a vision of reality for a culture, and they have a responsibility to show the whole truth of the object being portrayed in their art.
As Americans we crave beauty. Being surrounded by art that conveys truth and beauty in and through a true worldview brings peace and consolation.
But, being surrounded by art that shows a reductive understanding of the human person, focusing on its sexual value for instance, limits this experience of truth and beauty, and fails to uphold the total dignity of the human person. Megan and Morgan give advice on how to create a culture of life with the use of good art while relearning the truths of the human person that go unsupported by current mainstream art and media.

Joy in Suffering - Chiara Corbella Petrillo
Megan and Morgan discuss the life and witness of the young Italian woman, Chiara Corbella Petrillo. Born in the 1980’s, Chiara was a woman of our times who embraced life as a gift and the sufferings that come with it as a joy. In choosing life for her unborn children despite hopeless diagnoses she learned true peace in letting God receive her children in His time. When faced with a fatal cancer in herself while pregnant for the 3rd time, she willingly put off treatment until her son was born. Her life was short and she passed away in 2012. Chiara ultimately sacrificed her own life to protect the life of her child. Hers is a witness of simple true heroism. The joy she bore in the midst of extreme suffering makes her story worth knowing, sharing, and emulating.
Virginity and the Afterlife
In this episode of Naked Without Shame, the topic of the redemption of man is discussed by show hosts Megan and Morgan, not only to understand what life will be like in the resurrection of the body in heaven, but also how the human person can participate in the redemption of the body here and now in this life. Christianity has been accused of rejecting one's life on earth for the sake of waiting for the enjoyment of the afterlife, particularly as seen through the witness of the vocation to consecrated virginity. However, John Paul II expresses that this posture of embracing the life to come when man will be in his "redeemed" state, is a positive renunciation for the sake of greater participation in the love of God here on earth. And while consecrated virginity signifies this state to come, all people are called to enjoy a foretaste of the redemption of the body now. Watch this episode to hear more!
The Spousal Meaning of The Body
In this episode we discuss what Pope John Paul II calls the "spousal characer" of the body. This means that man's call to love and be loved is not simply something spiritual but is written into his very flesh! Megan and Morgan get real and talk about the beauty of this teaching as well as its difficulties. Things get personal as they both address how they apply it to their own lives.
