An Apologetics of the Flesh: The Body as the Path to God

You are invited to attend our next monthly meeting to be held on Friday, July 14th from 3:00pm to 4:30pm. We will be discussing “An Apologetics of the Flesh: The Body as the Path to God” by José Granados from the Fall 2022 issue entitled The Fresh (Volume 49.3).

Here is an excerpt from the Introduction to the issue:
In “An Apologetics of the Flesh: The Body as the Path to God,” José Granados dwells on bodily experience as both necessary for and ordered to life with God. “At the creation of the world, God speaks a word that, out of nothing, inaugurates the corporeal space men will inhabit, where they will be able to respond to him and enter into a covenant with him.” The senses, Granados observes, make us aware of our finitude, but they do so by always bringing us into contact with things whose actuality surpasses us. In different ways, each of the senses reminds us thereby that we belong with others from the beginning, and leads us from within concrete relationships to the divine origin who holds together the communion of all that is, and who, both by becoming incarnate and by incorporating us into himself, bestows on us the whole of his presence in the flesh.

We will meet in the Kateri Room located at St. Michael’s Church, 240 Hemlock Street, Waterloo, Ontario. Use the east side parking lot and enter by the rear doors. Walk up the stairs. The Kateri Room is on your right before you enter the church proper.

The online option is on hold. It may resume when the winter weather makes it more challenging to travel to Waterloo. Thank you for your anticipated understanding.
