"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Spanish Catholic Youth Calendar...

The passion according to theology of the body...

A Catholic youth group has shocked its religious superiors in Mallorca by producing a calendar that features a nude version of the passion of Christ. - Story


  1. "daring and original idea" - NO
    Soft porn - YES!
    Blasphemous - Definitely!

    Wouldn't necessarily have a problem if Christ were depicted nude, as He may well have been crucified in that manner -- but the photo shown is obviously some kind of spoof -- and very offensive to my sensibilities.

  3. The bishop agrees with all of you.

    I still think it is TOB run amok! We are seeing the results of continuing bad catechesis.

    Maybe at World Youth Day some of the promoters can arrange for them to all pose naked with the Pope. Kind of like the nearly nude male acrobats that entertained him at the Wednesday audience last year.
