Pope Francis’s Concern

Pope Francis

"Don't they (the media) realize that the
family, all over the world is in crisis?
And the family is the basis of society?
Don't they realize that young people
don't want to get married?"

Pope Francis’s Challenge

•   More happily married couples = more young want to marry
•   What to do that is quick-to-learn and easy-to-use?

2018 Synod Marriage, Family and Youth
•   Invited world leaders to help solve this world crisis

Pope's Words and Bishop's Invitation

"Pope Francis is clear; marriage cannot be improvised. A good marriage takes commitment and hard work."

"In their book, Jim and Carol Steffen outline a very simple recipe for a strong, healthy marriage. By asking one question a day, husbands and wives can work together to build a relationship that endures.

"I invite couples of all ages and experience to take up Jim and Carol's challenge of growing True Love That Lasts using the one question a day."

Directory for Catechesis 2020New Directory for Catechesis 2020

Paragraph 232a emphasized not to focus on just marriage preparation
A marriage relationship is a living thing.
Like all living things, if it's not growing, it's dying!
The focus should be on lifetime formation and growth.

Executive Director Donovan: The book is very timely because its a proven method to implement the New Directory—growing in the enjoyment and love of your spouse a little bit each day, for a lifetime.

Benefits You Can Expect

1. It is possible to grow True Love a little each day with a single question a day.
2. The ability to tell their spouse what they REALLY want was worth the entire webinar.
