As we conclude the One In Christ Marriage Prep Seminar, we would like to share some final thoughts, encouragement, and counsel to carry you through marriage and family life.

  • God created you out of love, with a purpose and a destiny; seek to do the will of God in all things through prayer and you will find an everlasting dwelling place among the Saints in Heaven.
  • How will you be able to remain “One” together until death do you part? God’s grace will be the means by which you will be able to remain steadfast, his amazing grace is a gift that keeps on giving; ask for it often and receive it as much as you can in the Sacraments, the place where God meets man and man receives God.
  • Joy arises from placing the Lord central in your marriage covenant.
