Yesenia Braunstein (Fontana, CA)
"We are a new CCL NFP teaching couple and want to have a strong understanding of TOB and other topics surrounding our bodies/sexuality so we can be the best ministry leaders we can be for our parish."
Henri Tran (San Gabriel, CA)
"I was first exposed to TOB a few years ago and am beginning to be interested in learning more about The Theology of the Body and thought attending the Congress would be a great start."
Thomas DeAngelis (Hershey, PA)
"I love being immersed in the Theology of the Body for a few days with people who are as passionate about it as I am. In my work with Catholic high school athletes, mostly boys, I find Pope John Paul’s message of mutual self-giving (teamwork), through the grace of self-mastery (discipline, hard work), to be inspiring to young men looking for some practical reason why they should be a 'Catholic' athlete. TOB helps us become renewed in our original innocence, and cultivate a deep and genuine self-mastery. This self mastery leads us to true spontaneity in performing our work, and in our whole lives. This life of masterful performance is so different from the undisciplined recklessness in our secular world, especially in the world of superstar sports, that masquerades as genuine joy and spontaneity of performing in public. Masterful, spontaneous performance is what we’re called to by our God who is Love. I like to call it 'sports in the spirit.'"
Guillermo Morfin (Huntington Park, CA)

4. "You" the new Theology of the Body for Teens study from Ascension Press ($129 value)
Winner: Jennifer Yosuico (San Diego, CA)
5. "Freedom to Love", a TOB study for young adults from Ascension Press ($79 value)
Winner: Ernesto Salon (Covina, CA)
"[My wife and I] registered for the TOB Congress because we are quite familiar with the teaching (we have the book - the Christopher West version, not the original JPII text) and want to learn more, and enhance what we already know about the subject... Originally, we were familiar with the topic of TOB from a single young adult perspective. But now that we're married, we would like to learn more TOB from the perspective of the Sacrament of Marriage."
