Valentine’s Day marks the springtime “Season of Love.” It is quite often a time of renewed romance for couples—a time to start afresh and to renew their love, commitment, and passion for each other. It is a time to let go of the grudges, spats, and battles of the past year. It is a time to re-fuel and re-order the life of marital intimacy. It is also a time for expressions of love—often through the many flowers, diamonds, chocolates and massive teddy bears that fill the stores this time of year.
As couples, do you have ideas on how to better your relationship? Do you invest everyday on your relationship, but the harder you work, the more it slips between your fingers? Do you make a sincere effort to bring your relationship on track, but it drifts away? Are you eager to make use of this February as an opportunity to take your relationship to the next level?
Marriage first and foremost is a spiritual relationship. It works best when two people are connected individually to God. If you push the spiritual dimension to the side, you risk wrecking the whole marriage. God who created marriage is the only One that can make it work. You may say, “I don’t have time for spiritual things; I have more pressing issues right now” or “My spouse isn’t interested in spiritual matters.” Smaller concerns are often pressing and urgent, but none are as important as developing your spiritual intimacy.
“Two glasses that are empty cannot fill up one another. There must be a fountain of water outside the glasses, in order that they may have communion with one another. It takes three to make love.” (Fulton J. Sheen)
Consider joining other couples in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston in a night of adoration of Christ the King—a night of healing, refreshment and renewal, a night specially designed for couples to not only “spice-up” but transfigure their relationship.
Childcare is available with advance reservation.
Facilitated by Kingsley Nwoko, STL Seminarian for the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston Founder of the Emmaus School of Love
