“Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. If a  blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” (MT 15: 14)
This is why we learn all the time; this is why we want to live in a community with other couples to learn from them and to have regular meetings and moments of sharing and learning from each other. The more we know, the more we want to learn to guide and to help our brothers and sisters who are also married. We are not better, but we are equals and we want to help (“Among the fruits which ripen forth from a generous effort of fidelity to the divine law, one of the most precious is that married couples themselves not infrequently feel the desire to communicate their experience to others. Thus there comes to be included in the vast pattern of the vocation of the laity a new and most noteworthy form of the apostolate of like to like; it is married couples themselves who become apostles and guides to other married couples. This is assuredly, among so many forms of apostolate, one of those which seems most opportune today.” HV, 26)
“Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel.” (Gospel Acclamation)
