Behold the Man No. 52 The 30 Day Challenge for Marriage

Today, on “Behold the Man” we talk about the 30 day challenge for marriage. We also look at what marriage is, and what it is NOT.  We take a quick trip through salvation history to see how it began and how it ended up… then how, our Lord raised it to a new level.

    Hi Roselne,

    Thank you for leaving the comment! There is no time like the present to start to learn your faith, to read sacred scripture, and allow yourself to be the instrument the Holy Spirit can use to lead your husband into a stronger relationship with God. This is an act of the will, as choice, not an act of emotion. If we waited until we “felt” like seeking holiness, or evangelizing… we never would. We make a choice to seek first the kingdom… then all else will be given as well.

    If you want a good book that will give you a “30-thousand-foot-view” of scripture, and salvation history, then read “A Father who keeps His promises” by Dr. Scott Hahn. This is one of my favorite books of all time and the study guide for our scripture study series on the show. This book will help you connect all the dots from the Old Testament to the New.

    For your husband… seek holiness for yourself first! Live the faith… your witness, through action, will be the first offensive effort to pay off. It’s kinda like flying on a plane… the flight attendants always tell you, in case there is a sudden loss of pressure, to place the oxygen mask on yourself first… then the person next to you. There is no way you can help the person next to you if you are not first able to breath… said another way… there is no way you can help your husband find God, if you are not first seeking him yourself. Pray for him daily… take every opportunity to offer up sacrifices for him, his daily conversion, and holiness. Meditate on the words of St. Paul in Colossians 1:24; St. Paul is inviting you to join your suffering to Christ on the cross. Your suffering, your sacrifices can only find their meaning on the cross!

    I do not know anything about your situation, or your husband’s, however, I would recommend you sharing good Catholic resources with your husband, books, videos, podcasts, etc. Fill your day with learning and being formed in the faith. Go to the Mass every week and frequent confession… the Sacraments are the remedy to a life of sin.

    I shall pray for your marriage at daily Mass this month! May God have mercy on you and your husband and grant you abundant graces!

    In Christ
