I began writing Reflections for Couples in 2015 as a blog here on our website for the Vocation of Marriage. After writing 215 of them, I turned them into an ebook.
The impetus to write these came from the desire that my husband Ralph and I have to find good, inspirational dialog starters. We used what we found and then searched for more, hoping especially to find Catholic reflections that would feed our Sacrament of Marriage. When our search came up empty, I knew the Holy Spirit was saying: “You write them!”
Then I learned about a couple who had for years received and shared my Good News Reflections but they got divorced. I had stayed in their home when they brought me to their parish to give a retreat. Now I thought, “I’ve failed them!” The generic reflections on the scriptures of daily and Sunday Mass were not enough to divorce-proof their marriage. And so the Reflections for Couples began.
RADICAL LOVE: Reflections for Couples is a collection of short reflections based on scriptures and teachings of the Catholic Faith, for couples to read together and dialog with, to enhance their relationship.
You can use this blog to scroll through the posts, but there will be no new ones. The ebook is easier to use than searching through this blog.
The ebook is available as a 228-page PDF from Catholic Digital Resources for those who want to print the reflections. The price is $7 (USD) per couple (two copies). You can also buy it as a Kindle book on Amazon (see if it’s available in your country, in the Kindle list we’ve posted on GNM).
If you know couples (dating, engaged or married) who could benefit from these Reflections for Couples, please share this post with them.
Also consider recommending this ebook to your parish’s Marriage and Family Ministry director. Discounts are available for group and parish licenses. Share the link gnm.org/terry-modica-author/radical-love-reflections-for-couples.
God bless you and your sweetheart!
