About this Episode

Does the Church need to "get out of the marriage business?" Can I encounter God through rap music? What's your opinion on married priests?

Ask Christopher West is a weekly podcast in which Theology of the Body Institute Director 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.

This week’s questions:

Q1: What would you say to a priest who says “We (as in the Church) need to get out of the marriage business?”

Q2: What if the language of my students’ hearts is rap music, riddled with vulgarity and distortions of the truth? Will they find messages about who they truly are in that music?

Q3: What is your opinion on married priests?
