Not the Destination...

Marriage is a journey, not a destination...

Greeted by Orchids

The Japanese flight from San Francisco to Tokyo was very comfortable. We had four seats for the two of us. The meals were abundant and delicious. It was interesting to see all the signs in Japanese.

Upon arriving we were greeted at the gate by Father Onyema who introduced us to the outgoing General and the incoming one! Our heads were spinning as Father drove us (on the left side of the road) to the Air Force Base. The coast line seems to be crowded: casinos, hotels, but also palm trees, magnolias (or so it seemded in the dark). The US Navy has several bases there too. Signs in Japanese only everywhere! It seemed unreal.

A nice big fruit basket welcomed us in our Air Force Inn one bedroom appartment. Program for tomorrow: visit of the chapel, tour of the island in a 4 seats Cesna! Yeah! Welcome to the tropics!

In our mission statement at we say: “Agape Catholic Marriage Preparation invites couples to a deeper relationship with each other and with Christ, one couple at a time.  Online, on-demand instruction rooted in Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, combined with personalized mentoring from a trained married couple, builds a foundation for a strong, healthy, Christ-centered marriage between a man and a woman.”  Who does that best serve?   From the very inception of serving military couples has always been on our hearts, even offering a military discount.

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!  

One You May Have Missed

Family Life
Marriage Prep
On your wedding day, you are asked, “Have you come here to enter into marriage without coercion, freely and wholeheartedly?” If you have, you can proceed to the exchange of consent, which is when the marriage actually takes place. This consent must be free, because as I wrote last week, no one can force you to love another person, just like God can’t force you to love him.
