About this Episode

How do I talk about cohabitation with my secular friends? My wife wants to use contraception, what should I do? How does Theology of the Body speak into seminary formation and discernment for priesthood?

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.

Q1: How can I charitably discuss the topic of living together before marriage with couples who do not share the faith? And in some ways may find Christianity in general to be abrasive. I want the best for these people, and my concern comes from a genuine desire for their good. Do you know of a secular approach to the topic of living together before marriage?

Q2: My wife has been struggling greatly with NFP and has arrived at the point of wanting to use artificial contraception. What are my obligations as a husband and what should I do?

Q3: Hello Christopher and Wendy. I just wanna ask for tips on how you would connect the Theology of theBbody with seminary formation/discerning for priestly life.
