"Sexual union, lovingly experienced and sanctified by the sacrament, is in turn a path of growth in the life of grace for the couple. It is the ‘nuptial mystery."
"[The weekend] has given us renewed energy, understanding and commitment to our marriage. It has helped us to shift out marriage focus to faith."
"It has really helped me to accept my spouse more and be more responsible for our marriage. It has helped me to know that I have to work towards a perfect marriage that reflects Christ's love."
"Inspired us to communicate more. Helped us to be open to each other. Helped us to rediscover the spiritual quality of our marriage and sexual intimacy."
"[The weekend] has shed new light and further meaning to our marriage as a sacrament."
"Introduced us to a new way of thinking and approach to our marriage [with an] understanding that we need God and prayer in our marriage."
"Greatly benefitted us. Faith in God and our spiritual life were greatly encouraged and the true meaning of sex presented."
There is no group sharing!
Topics include the gift of sexuality, formation by our family of origin, trust & control, forgiveness & healing, spiritual aspects of sexual intimacy, sacrament, and the power of our relationship to influence others.
"Each marriage is a kind of ‘salvation history’, which from fragile beginnings – thanks to God’s gift and a creative and generous response on our part – grows over time into something precious and enduring."

“[T]he erotic dimension of love … must be seen as a gift from God that enriches the relationship of the spouses. As a passion sublimated [that means raised up, properly directed, made ‘sublime’] by a love respectful of the dignity of the other, it becomes a ‘pure, unadulterated affirmation’ revealing the marvels of which the human heart is capable."
