Resources To Strengthen Your Marriage

 

Advent Meditations for Married Couples 2022

 

God wants to transform marriages today. One of the best ways to cooperate with God in that grand vision is to immerse ourselves as couples in praying together with Sacred Scripture. The Scriptures reveal the true story of God’s good creation, and of mankind’s nature, purpose, fall, and rescue.

As we are immersed in the grand story that runs from creation to the ultimate restoration of creation in the new heaven and the new earth, we discover how our own stories as individuals and as a married couple with our children are wonderfully woven into that big story.

We offer these mediations as a way for couples to stay connected during the hectic Advent season.

Pattern

All the Scripture readings from the Catholic Lectionary for Advent 2022 are listed for each day. We have selected one of the daily readings for the couple to read together as part of their prayer. It is followed by the usual pattern of meditation, quiet reflection, discussion, and prayer.
