Mondays and Bodies

My goal is to have a substantive blog post up each Monday. I've been working on a blog post, but it's not coming together. Had I started working on it, say, before ten pm Monday night, it probably would have been ready, but oh well. Instead, here is someone else saying something substantive:

"The divine Architect designed our male and female bodies in the very lines and curves of our flesh and bones to proclaim the mystery of Christ and his life-giving union with the Church. This, ultimately, whether we realize it or not, is why we are drawn to the human body--why we are deeply stirred by the mystery of it's masculine and feminine beauty and why we yearn for intimacy and communion."

--Christopher West, "The Theology of the Body Explained: a Commentary on John Paul II's Gospel of the Body", p8

As always, please feel free to share your thoughts.
