Catholic Faith and the Body in a Digitized World
Catholic faith is “incarnational.” As a divine person, Jesus truly became man with a body that walked dusty roads, taught in the open fields, ate with delight, sailed the Sea of Galilee, suffered death, and rose transformed.
In a digitized world characterized by instant communication, avatars and robots, there are many who question the need – even the desirability – of having a human body. This session will explore the enduring gift and meaning of the body, within a culture where technological instruments either assist a life of faith or bring disintegration. CFD:
