Here is a talk (video clip below) by Fr John Bartunek, LC, broken up into two parts. This was a talk given at a marriage renewal retreat, in May 25, 2010. St Louis, MO. USA.
The first talk, entitled “Your Marriage: A Blessing to the World,” is a lively, engaging presentation aimed at helping married couples understand, accept, and cooperate with God’s plan for marriage. The key: put God at the center of your marriage. Fr. John's talk is full of stories and examples, it is a helpful resource that will bring clarity and light to the essence of married life.
The second talk, “Spouses Bring Each Other Closer to God,” touches on the cycle of married love as a progression from initial romance to disillusionment to a deeper, more solid love. As married couples grow in their love for each other, they can also help each other grow in their love for God. Again, Fr. John is rich in examples and illustrations.
Enjoy the talks!
