How to find a Catholic husband or wife
23 JANUARY 2012
We all agree on the necessity of promoting the family as an institution, so badly attacked in our modern world.
For us youth, it is really important to support this too, we need to be pro-active in discerning our vocations, which means meeting other young men and women and being courageous. No one ever got married by sitting around wishing to get married, after all.
We're very blessed to have a local retreat specifically on this subject, reflecting on the riches of this sacrament will enable us to appreciate it better, for our own benefit whether we are married, single, on the journey towards marriage or not, it's simply a great way to learn more about it.
