It’s not too late! If you start right now, you and your spouse can participate in a virtual seven-day marriage retreat that will take you right up to Valentine’s Day. Well, technically it will take you to Friday the 13th, but let’s not go there.
The National Marriage Week Retreat with Pope Francis: Keeping Love Alive is being sponsored by For Your Marriage, an initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to strengthen marriages. Here’s the description of what’s to come in the days ahead:
“Looking for a way to enrich your marriage? Take our seven day virtual retreat based on Pope Francis’s advice about marriage and family life! Each day for seven days, set aside some time for prayer. Read about the theme for the day, reflect on a real-life marriage scenario, and think about ways to strengthen your own marriage. End each mini-retreat by praying a prayer for married couples. If possible, do the retreat together with your spouse!”
Dennis and I are starting the retreat tonight. Why not join us and check back in at the end of the week to compare notes. Tonight’s theme: “Marriage is the Icon of God’s Love.” Click HERE to get the retreat reading, reflection, prayer, and practice. By Valentine’s Day you and your spouse should be ready for a real celebration of your love.
