The well-being of the individual person and of human and Christian society is intimately linked with the healthy condition of that community produced by marriage and family.
Pope Paul VI issued this prophetic message in the Vatican II document, Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World (Gaudium et Spes), on December 7, 1965. At a time when the world was fraught with rapid change and traditional values were being questioned, and often jettisoned as being “old fashioned,” the Church offered its service to guide humanity to true meaning and happiness. Divorce was rapidly rising, children born out of wedlock were increasing and traditional family life and moral values were under attack. More than 50 years later the assault on families has escalated, leaving broken children and parents in its wake.
Marriage is under attack. Satan, knowing that he has been defeated by the blood of Christ, is seeking to destroy that which is nearest to God’s heart, the family. The Great Deceiver has convinced countless individuals that the Church’s teaching on marriage and sexuality is outdated and only seeks to deny sexual freedom.
The proponents of sexual freedom promise happiness and fulfillment. Is this the case? Jesus told us that prophets would be known by their fruits.
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but underneath are ravenous wolves. By their fruits you will know them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Just so, every good tree bears good fruit, and a rotten tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a rotten tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. So by their fruits you will know them. Matthew 7:15-20 NAB
The fruits of sexual freedom are evident. Divorce, cohabitation, single parent families headed by women, drug and alcohol abuse among minors, teenage sexual experimentation and abortion, sexually transmitted diseases, violence and lawlessness are rising exponentially. Broken parents and children are left in the wake of the destruction of the family. The only hope for society is to return to the teachings of the Catholic Church regarding the sacrament of marriage. True happiness is only found in obeying God and His commands.
We are passionate about helping couples build marriages that thrive, not just survive. Our families have suffered the wounds caused by divorce. We have seen the devastation it causes to the physical, emotional, and spiritual health of both children and their parents. This is why we have built this ministry. There is a better way. Let us show you how.
The essence and role of the family are…specified by love. Hence the family has the mission to guard, reveal and communicate love, and this is a living reflection of and a real sharing in God’s love for humanity and the love of Christ the Lord for the Church his bride. St. John Paul II, Apostolic Exhortation Familiaris Consortio, 17
We help couples live Christ-centered, joy-filled marriages through inviting them to a personal encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Come to him, to that living stone, rejected by men but in God’s sight chosen and precious; and like living stones be yourselves built into a spiritual house…acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:4-5
