God s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage is a marriage preparation supplement that offers engaged couples a more complete understanding of God s glorious plan for marriage and human sexuality than perhaps any program available in the Church today. Based on Pope John Paul II s Theology of the Body, this supplement is intended to enhance a key component of marriage preparation: catechesis in the theology of marriage and the gift of human sexuality. This DVD includes a Full-Length Version of eight talks and a Segments Version, with easy-to-use navigation menus. The forty-three shorter video segments enable marriage preparation facilitators to utilize select aspects of the original video program while enhancing their own live presentations of the God s Plan content. (Segment descriptions can be found in the accompanying guide.) Introduction (4 segments) Talk #1: God s Plan for Marriage In the Beginning (8 segments) Talk #2: Christ Restores God s Plan for Marriage (7 segments) Talk #3: What Are You Saying I Do To? (6 segments) Talk #4: Sexual Honesty Before Marriage (6 segments) Talk #5: Sexual Honesty Within Marriage (7 segments) Talk #6: Some Practical Benefits of Natural Family Planning (5 segments) Question & Answer (8 questions) The Holy Father teaches that human life s dignity and balance depends at every moment on who woman will be for man and who man will be for woman. God s plan of life and love is literally stamped in our bodies. Here, you will find a much-needed testimony to the essential interrelation between love, life, and sexuality, and discover how a deep appreciation for this interrelation is the path to a blessed and joy-filled marriage. The Theology of the Body has been called “one of the boldest reconfigurations of Catholic Theology in centuries,” according to George Weigel, the pope’s official biographer. It addresses some of the most fundamental and important questions of human existence, including: Why were we created male and female? Where do we come from and why? What is the meaning of life? How do we experience it? Why is there evil in the world and how do we overcome it? The God’s Plan workbook and the DVD series are perfect for Marriage Prep classes or for use as a supplement with an existing Pre-Cana program.
