Slide 15 CATHOLIC ANTHROPOLOGY How the Catholic perspective shapes: Our way of life Our way of relating to self Our way of relating to others Our way of relating to the world Our entire modus operandi as human beings (persons) Slide 16 How do you look at the world? Whats your story of life From beginning to end? Slide 17 Here are two stories Which one do you prefer? The first story begins like this: Once upon a time, a very long time ago, there was a series of accidents. Energy and matter and molecules collided and somehow you are here today. Here by coincidence. Here by chance. The second story starts this way: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. And you are here today, not by accident, but because he designed you, and loves you and wants to have a relationship with you. Slide 18 Here are two stories Which one do you prefer? The first story continues: The fit live. The weak die. So kill or be killed. Survival is the name of the game. Look out for number one. And heres how the second story goes: Blessed are the meek. Blessed are the poor. Blessed are the peacemakers. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. Slide 19 Here are two stories Which one do you prefer? The first story finishes like this: You die. The end. And the second story? Actually the second story has no end at all: For Jesus said, I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies, and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.
