Living a fulfilling married life can be challenging, and at times complicated. It’s no wonder the disciples said to Jesus, “If that is how things are between husband and wife, it is advisable not to marry” (Matthew 19:10). As a priest and a professional marriage and family therapist, this statement resonates with me and causes me to consider the daily struggles of married couples.
Recognizing challenges is the first step to overcoming them, then having the necessary support and tools makes a huge difference. Couples Corner provides those support and tools, bringing hope that challenges can be overcome. It brings the presence of God, in the person of the priest, into marriage.
Theology intersects with family life, psychology embraces faith; God’s peaceful and healing presence is brought into the marital relationship. It always takes three in a marriage: God, husband and wife. Hence, we focus on hope and healing for couples at this corner.
