John Paul II takes us back to “the beginning”, to that time before the Fall of Adam and Eve when they enjoyed the kind of relationship we all wish to have. It is something beautiful, sweet and loving. JPII takes us back to the beginning to discover the “operator’s manual” for our relationships. First, we see Adam recognize that he is different from other animals. And he is thankful for this. He knows he has a relationship with God. With Eve, however, he recognizes that he is no longer alone, and better still, he has someone whom he can love! By giving himself to her and by receiving her gift in return, “man finds himself”. More beautiful still: Christ makes this relationship possible for us today.
