Falling in love is easy. Growing in love together is a lot harder. That is the reality of married life. Real married life is hard, messy and beautiful all at the same time.
The love you had when you first met — romantic feelings, the mutual attraction, the joy of being together — it was real, and God used those feelings to draw you together. But God doesn’t want you to stay there. You can’t stay there. It’s not enough. God wants to take you deeper. He wants to build a deeper love, a stronger bond.
Tables for Two aims at helping you explore growing deeper together.
This evening takes place in a subdued setting with one couple per table. After a short presentation by a married couple, we’ll serve you a five-course meal with wine. Each course includes a series of discussion questions for you and your spouse to pursue, just the two of you.
Marriage has a way of drawing out the best and the worst of us – and that is all a part of the beautiful process of what God wants to do in you through marriage.
Reflecting on the biblical story, the Wedding Feast at Cana, Pope Benedict XVI said, “The first wine is very fine: this is falling in love. But it does not last until the end: a second wine has to come later, it has to ferment and grow, to mature. The definitive love that can truly become this ‘second wine’ is more wonderful still, it is better than the first wine. And this is what we must seek.”
Please join us in this process of deepening and celebrating your marriage on Feb. 17 at Precious Blood Renewal Center.
