Episode description

“As a human person, made male or female, your body tells you something. Your body tells you that you are created to be a gift: you are made for relationship.” Growing up in a culturally Catholic country, Joy Katigbak knows very well what it means to serve. As the Lord called her to work in ministry, she was invited to be docile and more open to Him. This openness made her instrumental in bringing Theology of the Body to her home country of the Philippines. Now, she shares this important message as a TOB speaker both locally and abroad. In this episode, Joy shares how ministry is deeply woven into her marriage and family life, how she first came to learn about Theology of the Body, and the importance of making a gift of ourselves to others.
