85: Contraception and the Eclipse of the Body—Christopher West (video segment- full audio below)

This was a really fascinating conversation with the world’s best known expositor of the Theology of the Body by St. John Paul II. In his second appearance on The Patrick Coffin Show, Christopher West is in fine form connecting all manner of dots as we talk about the impact of dissent from Humanae Vitae, the 1968 encyclical by soon-to-be-St. Paul VI, in light of West’s new ebook, Eclipse of the Body.

In this episode you will learn:

  • How the “errors of Russia” in the message of Fatima have to do with the destruction of marriage and family
  • The way in which the sexual revolution started with exalting the body, is now running its last lap because of debasing the body
  • How the gender confusion in the world has affected the divine liturgy
  • Why the transgenderism movement is an inevitable consequence of dissent from Humanae Vitae
  • The deep influence of St. John Paul II in the writing and implementing of Humanae Vitae
