Jason and Crystalina Evert rejoin the mission with some enduring words on the family. This video was filmed in Philadelphia at the World Meeting of Families with Pope Francis in attendance. Movinf forward as a Church, an interior life is so key for Catholic parents, as they lead their children closer to Christ. The Everts are spot on when they say, for those that have struggling families, don’t be afraid to reach out  to the global Catholic family. We are strong, and it is the Eucharist that strengthens the ‘one billion global Catholic family’.

El hombre y la mujer somos diferentes, pero tenemos la misma dignidad. Es justamente esa complementariedad entre el hombre y la mujer que hace que el plan de Dios para el matrimonio tenga tanta alegría, lógica, y que le hace la fundación la nuestra sociedad. Para el bien de todas las culturas del mundo, es necesario que los esposos hacen sacrificios diarios para el bien de su matrimonio, y de su familia.
Los esposos Karim y Neil comparten con nosotros su testimonio del plan de Dios para el matrimonio y la familia, y su entrega completa, total, fiel y fecunda.
¿Cómo fortalece su matrimonio o su noviazgo la complementariedad del hombre y la mujer? Comparte su experiencia en los comentarios abajo.

Men and women are different, very different actually, but equal in dignity. It is this complementarity of men and women that makes God’s plan for marriage so joyful, logical, and the building block of society. Strengthening global cultures through the daily sacrifice of marriages rooted within love is key for the future health of our world. Karim and Neil are living out and bearing witness to the hope of God’s perfect plan for marriage, family, openness to life, and laying down one’s life for another.

How does the complementarity of man and woman strengthen your relationship? Share your experience in the comments below.

Eddie had an idea, to give his ‘princess’, Colleen, a moment to remember for the rest of their lives together. He asked OBS to make a video about marriage, in order to communicate to his bride to be, and the world, the beautiful witness of marriage within the Catholic Church.

He brought Colleen to a movie theater in Denver, sat her down, left to go use the restroom, then had the theater operator play the video you just saw, which led into Eddie’s perfect proposal, and OBS was there to film the special moment, for all of you to witness. A beautiful story and testament to a sacramental marriage, that deserves to be shared with your family and friends.

In the comments below, share how you proposed, or were proposed to, go…
