An Introduction to the Devout Life continues, with two chapters of advice for married people. I think most people will agree with most of it. However, being French, our good bishop of course insists on explaining the Theology of the Body parts of marriage. (Several centuries before the current theology, of course; but it’s not as if JPII just made this stuff up on his own.)

Book 3, Chapters 38-39.
