Remove the wooden beam from your eye first

“How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me remove that splinter in your eye,’ when you do not even notice the wooden beam in your own eye? You hypocrite!  Remove the wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter in your brother’s eye.” (LK 6: 42) 

How perfectly this sentence-“Remove the wooden beam from you eye first”-describes the first strategy of our Program 1. If we really want to improve our relationship, we need to start from I, not from you. I need to change, I need to improve my relationship, I need to take responsibility, I need to “remove the wooden beam from my eye first,” then we can start our relationship with better vision, seeing our spouse’s beauty first.
“Your word, O Lord, is truth; consecrate us in the truth.” (Gospel Acclamation)
