Part 2: Who is Man for Woman and Who is Woman for Man?


In this fourth session of his Theology of the Body Retreat series, Fr Thomas Loya continues to explore the language of the body in males and females. He explores in depth the fears and needs of the man and woman and how understanding this through the language of the body, is essential to a happy, lasting relationships and marriages. Fr Thomas explains that the majority of marriage problems are due to the husband and wife not understanding each other’s needs and rather, plugging into each other’s fears, which creates tension.


This presentation was part of the Theology of the Body Retreat held at the Mt Schoenstat Retreat Centre, Mulgoa and organised by the Family & Life Office from the Diocese of Parramatta.
