God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage

God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage

God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage is an acclaimed preparation program presented by renowned Catholic speaker Damon Owens. Based on Blessed John Paul II’s revolutionary Theology of the Body and the book Good News About Sex & Marriage, this program has a two-fold goal: to present a summary of Catholic teaching on God’s plan for marriage, and to offer engaged couples practical suggestions for embracing this plan in their own lives.

The Holy Father teaches that human life’s dignity and balance depends at every moment on ‘who woman will be for man and who man will be for woman.’ God’s plan of life and love is literally stamped in our bodies. Here, you will find a much-needed testimony to the essential interrelation between love, life, and sexuality, and discover how a deep appreciation for this interrelation is the path to a blessed and joy-filled marriage.

The Theology of the Body has been called “one of the boldest reconfigurations of Catholic Theology in centuries,” according to George Weigel, the pope’s official biographer. It addresses some of the most fundamental and important questions of human existence, including:

Why were we created male and female?
Where do we come from and why?
What is the meaning of life? How do we experience it?
Why is there evil in the world and how do we overcome it?

PART ONE OF TWO: When taken with Living a Joy-Filled Marriage, this completes the Marriage Preparation Requirement of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

“My life has profoundly changed in recent weeks in no small part to what I have learned at Ruah Woods and I thank God immensely for the TOB and the people I have met through the classes. Someday I will tell you exactly how all of this has impacted my life. But, for now, let me just say, ‘God is SO good!!!’”
