To the editor:
Attending the Notre Dame Retreat for Married Couples in May gave my wife and I a real feeling that God, the Holy Spirit, can heal and comfort us. The topics and the speakers brought us serenity and joy as we came to learn more about the love God has for us. Meeting other faithful Catholic couples — from newlyweds to longweds — added even more depth to the three-day retreat.
Moreover, our appreciation of God’s gift of marriage was aided by the delicious meals we were served. The beautiful grounds and peaceful meditative atmosphere helped us pray and relax. I have attend many men’s retreats in Canandaigua, but this was the first time I encouraged my wife to go, and we found it gave us a grace better than that of any vacation we have taken. There will be another couples retreat in October; I hope you can make it.
