It is so different to run Programme 2, meant for graduates of Programme 1, who have come to know the ropes and know the dynamics of the Programme and of the trainers. It is all so much easier, also for the trainer who can make references to the content that has to some extent been worked upon. Some homework may not have been done :), but a lot of things have been put into practice.
Now we take a look at the vocation to become parents.. at this extraordinary dignity of spouses who cooperate closely with God Creator (Humanae Vitae, 1) in the mission of giving life. It is all happening when we celebrate the Exaltation of the Cross. Hre and there we do not concentrate on the cross itself but on the complete self-giving. In Programme 2 we can see the necessity of radical self-giving in marriage. The less marriage, the weaker the parenthood.
So now there is an opportunity to take another look at the marriage in the perspective of parenthood. There are 18 couples. The ones who really care. Please remember them in your prayers if you can.
