Married Life

We are pleased to offer the following resources to help you on your journey as a couple.

Prayer

“On this journey prayer is important, it is necessary, always: he for her, she for him and both together. Ask Jesus to multiply your love.” – Pope Francis

As Pope Francis suggests, praying as a couple is good for your relationship, plain and simple. A recent analysis of data regarding couples’ and their religious practices found that 78% of couples who regularly attend religious services together reported being very, or extremely happy.

Also, couples who pray almost once a week or more frequently are considerably more likely to report being very happy in their relationship. Consider that God wants to be a part of your lives, and know that allowing Him in will do wonders for your relationship.

Not sure where to begin? If you are looking for some ideas, check out the following links. Don’t worry too much about “getting it right,” because as Dr. Peter Kreeft reminds us, “the most important thing about prayer is not how we do it but that we do it” [emphasis in original].
