This marriage-building program explores the Beatitudes as the path to holiness in Christian marriage. Holiness is the source of joy in marriage. This program guides married couples to live the Beatitudes in their daily life.

Blessed John Paul II taught us: "People are made for happiness... It is told in the Book of Genesis: God created man and woman in paradise, Eden, because he wanted them to be happy... The 'Sermon on the Mount' marks out the map of this journey. The eight Beatitudes are the road signs that show the way." (John Paul II - World Youth Day 2002)

Did You Know?

A marriage ceremony typically ends with a kiss because in ancient Rome, a kiss was a legal bond that sealed contracts, and marriage was seen as a contract.  Our marriage sacrament is not only a contract but a covenant between the husband, wife and God that is indissoluble.
