A (belated) Valentine’s Day Thought

There is a good zeal that can lead a married couple to God and to everlasting life. Practice this zeal then, with most fervent love.

  • Be the first to show respect
  • Support with patience one another’s weaknesses, whether they be of body or character
  • Compete with one another is showing mutual obedience
  • Do what you consider useful for the each other rather than what is useful for yourself
  • Love one another with sincere affection, and have a loving fear of God. Prefer nothing whatever to Christ. May He lead you together to everlasting life.

Adapted from the Rule of St. Benedict.  Apply it to any relationship!
