About this Episode

What do you recommend to priests desiring to learn Theology of the Body? How can a virgin prepare for sexual intimacy with his future spouse? My wife and I are Catholic and even though I am open to life, my wife wants me to use condoms. Would doing this make me guilty of contraception? Do my husband and I have to discern whether or not to have more children?

Ask Christopher West is a weekly podcast in which Theology of the Body Institute President Christopher West and his beloved wife Wendy share their humor and wisdom, answering questions about marriage, relationships, life, and the Catholic faith, all in light of John Paul II’s beautiful teachings on the Theology of the Body.
