WORLD MARRIAGE DAY FEBRUARY 10 – “Love One Another”

Faith in God is a very important part of marriage lived with commitment and loyalty.

Faith, therefore, is important in the realization of the authentic conjugal good, which consists simply in always wanting the good for the other, no matter what, together with a true and

indissoluble partnership for life. Faith without love bears no fruit. A true marriage has both faith and love. Pope Benedict XVI January 26, 2013

February 14, St Valentine’s Day – “Gratitude an essential virtue”


The 40 Day Gratitude Challenge

Gratitude is a virtue that can be deliberately cultivated and is a vital ingredient for any relationship.

Try the 40 Day Gratitude Challenge: Every day identify one good thing in your spouse/friend and express your gratitude to him/ her. Say it, write it, sing it, text it, draw it – it doesn’t matter how – just communicate it!

Do this for 40 days and see the difference.
