Why bring Timmerie to speak?
It’s time we work together to educate the future of the Catholic Church. In a modern culture where many find religion irrelevant and moral issues debatable it’s time the Church’s teaching is expressed clearly and concisely. Timmerie seeks to communicate the transcendence of human dignity found in the Church and how social and scientific evidence agrees. This is true whether discussing who we are in relation to God or how religion fits into the dialogue of today’s hot-button issue.
Some of Timmerie’s regular presentations are listed below. With her MA in Biblical Theology and deep roots in Catholic social teaching Timmerie is ready to engage on a wide variety topics.
Theology of the Body
Theology of the Body unravels the beauty of what it means to be authentically human in a fallen world. It looks at human sexuality as central to the human vocation and integral to understanding the soul’s pursuit of happiness whether you are single, married, or a consecrated religious. This anthropological and theological look at the human person from the beginning of time reminds us that all are called to life giving self giving love because we are men and women created in the image and likeness of God.
A ProWoman ProLife Dialogue
The conversation surrounding abortion for years has centered around the the humanity of the unborn child. This talk focusses on the need to create a stronger dialogue articulating the challenge of the woman facing a sexualized culture in favor of abortion and contraception. It’s time to reclaim the dialogue and show that to be pro-life is a woman centered approach for the good of the woman and all of society. To be pro-life is to believe in real reproductive rights and that a woman’s fertility does not make her deficient nor in need of fixing.
Chastity in the Modern World
This talk is adapted to the age of the audience as it digs into the importance of Chastity as an integral part of the human person. The focus surrounds the general human vocation of Chastity as the life giving self giving love that all are called to and the dignity of the human person as created in the image and likeness of God. Key teaching centers around John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and Love and Responsibility.
