Envision brings St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, with its clear answers about identity, relationships, and sexuality, to U.S. middle school students.

Ascension, makers of the bestselling Great Adventure Catholic Bible and the record-breaking Bible in a Year podcast designed the new program to offer wisdom in a format accessible and relatable to 6th through 8th graders.

“It is Jesus… you seek when you dream of happiness,” St. John Paul says in the program’s opening prayer. “He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you, he is the beauty to which you are so attracted.

“It is he who provokes you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is he who urges you to shed the masks of a false life, it is he who reads in your hearts your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle.”

The Envision program includes five videos relating to particularly “sensitive subjects” addressed in the Theology of the Body:
