Christopher West leads the sacramental portion of the program. Included in this awe-inspiring program are funny anecdotes, beautiful stories of couples, dramatic visual representations highlighting the beauty of God's purpose for humanity, and real-life interviews. You'll see a focus on both the sacramental importance of marriage along with the practical life skills needed to prepare couples for lovingly living together in the rich vision that God has planned for them, with the tools they need to tackle the new challenges of living with a new person they love after their honeymoon.
The program is designed to keep couples engaged and watching.
For leaders of marriage prep,
The leader guides and the program is designed to be simple so it can be used in every Catholic parish and diocesan situation. It will work with your particular challenges and arrangement. The program is not intended to work without you. It does not replace good leaders. We believe it is important to have leaders, in person, presenting and leading discussion. They are friends and advocates for the couples during their marriage preparation process.
Is it just for marriage preparation? Are there other possible uses?
This is a program for engaged couples. But, it's full of wisdom that applies to married couples throughout marriage. This is why we don't want to hold back this font of knowledge from couples who didn't have access to it when they got married, whether that be last year or 50 years ago. God's plan for marriage is timeless wisdom that couples of every generation are building newly enriched relationships upon. Young single adults may also benefit from understanding God's plan for marriage, since it may help them practice purity in hope and discover God's plan for them.
