A six-week Catholic devotional for couples based on JPII's Theology of the Body
Get your marriage off to a great start-or renew the marriage you've shared for years-with this six-week devotional for couples, which takes inspiration from Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body in all its significance. Experts Jackie François Angel and Bobby Angel will teach you how to pray together as a couple, opening you up to the wonders that God bestows on you.
Go from "I do" to "we do" as the book leads you in prayer and meditation on the great glory of God's love for you and his call for you to love freely, totally, faithfully, and fruitfully. It begins with the most fundamental questions of human existence-does life have a purpose?-then opens up to other questions: what is love? What is marriage? How do we accept the gift? How do we create family?
Your marriage has been called to be a physical sign here on earth and is both a great call and a great responsibility. You were created to live forever in communion with the God who loves us, and this fact is written right into your body! Here's an opportunity to answer God's call to you to live this truth in your marriage.
