About The Rich Gift of Love
What did John Paul II love so much about young people? He loved the fact that they are so full of hope and so full of dreams. At World Youth Day he said, in summary, You have many questions about your life: What will I do? What will be my place in the world? Where will I go? Where will I live? But, the single most important question you will ask is this: “To whom will I entrust myself?” How will I know if another person is worthy of my love? Worthy of my trust? How will I know if I am worthy of another’s trust and love?
In this course, Sister Jane Dominic studies John Paul II’s understanding of love as self-gift , loving through our bodies and doing it in the context of living for our families, our society and our culture.
