A gift for newlyweds or engaged couples

I haven't listened to this series--after 57 years of marriage and my "kids" at near the mid-century mark, not sure I'd change anything, however, listening to Father Riccardo is a treat, even if he were reading cookie recipes. Lots of his talks are on YouTube.


Part 1 – Marriage:  Fr. John discuss the two unique creation stories in Genesis. We are made in the image and likeness of God. What implications does that have?
Part 2 – Ephesians 5:  Fr. John breaks down Ephesians 5. This chapter contains one of the most beautiful passages ever written about marriage, but it is almost immediately considered to be out of touch and out of date because of how it starts: “Wives, be subject to your husbands as you are to the Lord.”
Part 3 – Fatherhood: It is the great mission and task of earthly fathers to be a tangible and visible expression of the heavenly Father’s love for His sons and daughters. Fr. John discusses the important role of fatherhood.
Part 4 – The Dignity of Woman: Mary DelPup, the Director of Evangelization and Catechesis at Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church, concludes the “What’s the Point?” series with a talk on the Apostolic Letter, Mulieris Dignitatem or “On the Dignity and Vocation of Women.”
