 Dr. Grabowski gave keynote address

On Saturday, September 24 Dr. Grabowski presented a keynote address at the Theology of the Body Institute International Congress in Ontario, CA entitled "Discerning the Body:  The Place of the Theology of the Body in the Ministry of Pope Francis"--This presentation engaged the view of  some commentators and pundits which holds that Pope Francis is not deeply interested in marriage, the family, or the Theology of the Body of his predecessor St. John Paul II.  This presentation challenged those views and showed the deep continuity between the two pontiffs as revealed in the recent Synods on family and the Apostolic Exhortation  Amoris laetitia.
