Fiat!

Well, this is something new... (as if I don't spend enough time on the web)

Since we're off to a good start with the Theology of the Body study group, I thought this might be a good way to exchange some TOB thoughts, as well as Natural Family Planning stuff, too.

We can:

share our thoughts on TOB "concepts"

discuss NFP challenges

ask questions on NFP rules and chart interpretation

share our comments on chastity

share faith experiences

make prayer requests

anything else we can think of


I hope some of you are up for it...

  2. I'm in the process of reading an article that describes the Trinitarian love where at the same time as the Father expected Jesus to offer himself Jesus anticipated the Father's expectation and offered himself. I was wondering how this plays into the desires of spouses. As one spouse has an ordered desire that they expect to be filled shouldn't the other spouse be in touch with the others ordered desires, anticipate them and act to fulfill them?

    This is a quote from the article I'm referring to:

    This manner of spontaneously anticipating the expectation of the Other is without any doubt one of the most characteristic features of trinitarian love, which is always and in each of the Persons, a perfectly self-forgetful love. This occurs in such a way
    that we must acknowledge in God both prayer and self-offering, willing and letting-happen, gift and reception, expectation and fulfillment (a fulfillment, to be sure, which is always divine, superabundant,
    and exceeding all expectation).
