For Encountered Married Couples
Marriage is the heart of the family. All areas of married life – rearing children, caring for elderly relatives etc – are based on a harmonious relationship between husband and wife. Therefore, it is essential for spouses to review the state of their marriage once in a while, as well as to renew their relationship regularly through honest, deep sharing.
– Parents and Children
– Reconciliation with one another and with their children
– Encounter with Self
– Dialogue, Understanding One Another
– Faith, God in Our Marriage, Couple Spirituality
FIRES Marriage Re-Encounter provides an opportunity for couples to renew and deepen their first Marriage Encounter experience of honest, open communication. Participants are invited to listen to talks by team couples, who share their lived experiences. Presentations are followed by periods of quiet reflection and couple sharing about handout questions. The two-day programme also includes Holy Mass and prayers led by a Catholic priest.
“God created man and woman to give meaning, life and love to the universe. He created marriage “to His image and likeness”, and God is not a circle. He is the spiraling foundation of Life and Love. The quest for happiness in marriage demands that you expand your vision and perspective beyond your marital relationships. You are challenged by today’s society to stop being a selfish and isolated married couple. And you are called by the Creator to depart from your conjugal and family love, and go towards the universal love. You, as a married couple, have been born to become a loving spiral of love!”
