Friday Feedback 2

1)   What is your overall impression of this prep (his answer)? it was very helpful and eye opening

2) Did it meet your expectations?  Yes and beyond for both of us

3) What did you appreciate most and why?:

Him: the discussions we had during the course.

Her: I liked that everything was in such detail and didn't skimp (in order not to offend; it wasn't always what you wanted to hear, it was the truth)

How did the course revive - or not - your faith?:

Him: Gave you a taste of what the churches teachings are.

Her: I loved how in depth everything was. It was refreshing to hear real teaching with no sugar coating. And to hear topics I have never once heard a priest even address even when asked such as the contraception talk. There are a lot of church teachings that I have never heard discussed in all the retreats I have been to and other church functions. I’ve heard from a lot of people that many priests are just intimidated by many subjects therefore don't ever discuss them with their church goers. Another couple I know that got married this summer was very disappointed with the alternative marriage retreat (engaged encounter). It missed many of the topics covered here and they were pretty disappointed. They completely skipped over what the church really teaches about contraception and a few other topics so they will be listening to the talk that was given here.

Comments on communication through the course: We were forced and able to talk about a few subjects we haven't spent a ton of time discussing previously.

9) Comments:Thought it was very long but well worth it. I know we would have been a lot more relaxed about it if we would have started at least 6months before the wedding. I'm glad it was something we had to do and spend time on. I know a lot of the churches here don't even require the engaged encounter or offer this as an alternative. I think they should even though it is so much work; but people these days need to wake up and discover what marriage really is and if your not willing to make an effort to get married you're probably going to be lazy in your marriage also. Thanks for everything it was wonderful

Wow!!!  Yes, that is the correct word to begin this blog post!  I think I am still in shock!  On the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus our country just experienced the overturning of an almost 50-year-old law regarding abortion.  Roe vs. Wade was overturned!

Human beings have always been fascinated by nature. Since we first started painting on cave walls, we’ve seen the beauty and wonder of the world around us, and we’ve wanted to understand it, tame it, take it in. We are curious creatures. After all, you don’t see a lion mourning for the lost beauty of a slain gazelle. You don’t see birds marveling at the loveliness of a sunset. If, then, we are created in the image of God, can you not imagine what sense of wonder He has for all He’s made?
