July 9, 2009. Detroit, Michigan. When Regnum Christi member Kelly Luttinen first listened to Christopher West’s presentation of Theology of the Body in the CD set “Naked Without Shame,” she felt angry and cheated.

“All I could think was, ‘Why had no one ever told me the Church’s teaching on human sexuality in this way before?!’  All the misery of my youth could have been avoided – I had been a victim of the culture and it almost destroyed me,” she said.

She first heard West’s talks while taking moral theology classes at Sacred Heart Seminary with Dr Janet Smith as the professor.  Dr Smith had given the class the 10-CD set of “Naked Without Shame” as a Christmas present. For Kelly, it was a gift that kept on giving.

From then on, she felt called to help spread a message that revolutionizes the way people think about the meaning of the body and of sexuality. She attended Christopher West’s Theology of the Body Institute. Shortly afterwards, she began to get involved with radio ministry at Michigan Catholic Radio (WCAR 1090 AM), where she has hosted several other radio shows on
