Because marriage is ordered to the good of the spouses, the development of interpersonal intimacy, not simply biological intimacy, is viewed as essential to the marital relationship.

There must be a giving and accepting on the part of each toward the other which involves a twofold action: each of the spouses makes an unqualified gift of self to the other and each, in turn, makes an unqualified acceptance of the other.

Dear Saint and glorious Martyr, who are so popular with lovers, be kind to those whom we love and to us.

Teach us to love unselfishly and to find great joy in giving.

onique Ocampo has a lovely Valentine’s day post on the plight of the single Catholic woman.

She includes some correspondence from one of her readers which I’m going to quote here because I think it is an excellent expression of what I’ve seen on the Catholic dating scene: Every Catholic guy I know is either dating, married, or a seminarian…

For the life of the marriage to grow and continue, the two must be faithful to one another and work unceasingly to build a union that will endure.

Let them love each other in God and God in each other. Saint Anthony of Padua is most well known across the world as the patron saint of finding lost things or lost people.The question that haunts so many single Catholic women is this: where are all of the good Catholic boys?And the answer, I’m afraid to say, is that they are mostly either married or in the seminary.Now, off course you could becomes the devout Catholic girl hanging around outside the seminary doors, waiting vulture-like to snap up any would-be priest who starts to have a vocations crisis, but I will warn you: the other good Catholic girls have already thought of this.Seminarian-watchers exist in droves, and unless you’re willing to descend on the faltering seminarian like he’s the last X-Box at a Black Friday sale, this probably is not the plan for you.
