God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage is a 6-Part study based on Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. The program is a key component of marriage preparation: catechesis in the theology of marriage and the gift of human sexuality. This program provides couples with a rich understanding of the teachings of the Church and offers them the tools to live them out in married life. When engaged couples understand God’s plan for marriage—including a clear and pastoral explanation of the “difficult teachings”—they come away with a sense of liberation and gratitude toward the Church.

God's Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage represents an important development in marriage preparation materials for Catholics everywhere.

Diocese of Fargo, North Dakota
