The phrase "life is full of challenges" includes in it not only those who are already inhabiting this world but also those who are still making their way into it, therefore such challenges must be addressed in such a way that no damage is done to us or to others - including the unborn child.
Through my System of Knowledge project, I got to work closely with Dar Ġużeppa Debono which is esteemed for its service given to single mothers and fathers alongside their family. The church-related organization also raises awareness on the value of life and on the importance of healthy relationships through a host of educational campaigns. However, throughout the years, the entity started to shift its focus to awareness campaigns about fertility-related issues as was the case with the launch of the Jiddispjaċini campaign.
Last month Dar Guzeppa Debono organized a series of lectures on the theme of Relationships at the Sir M.A. Refalo Centre for Further Studies in Victoria, Gozo (aka 6th Form) for first year studies. As part of this week-long course, I was asked to present a paper on the Theology of the Body. Given the short time available, the paper focused on a synthetic introduction regarding Christian anthropology, followed by a brief presentation of three situations that cause alienation from our truth as incarnate beings, to present three instruments that could help us "live" or "inhabit" our bodies in order to comunicate and relate with other human beings.
