He sent them ahead of Him in pairs to every town He intended to visit.

“Jesus appointed seventy-two other disciples whom he sent ahead of him in pairs to every town and place he intended to visit.” (LK 10: 1) 

I strongly believe that in our times, Our Lord also appoints married couples as “other  disciples” and sends them “ahead of Him in pairs to every town and place He intended to visit.” Our programs have started in new places (like Wrocław and Brussels, like Glasgow and Mexico, like Kraków and Omaha, like Bogota and Hastings, like Rybnik and Atlanta) because married couples want our programs in their cities and towns. Today’s “disciples in pairs”—married couples—are so needed because they know how important love is, and they know how to protect love.
