Dream of Jesus

Young men and women in the church can bring the joy of the Gospel to the world by showing that God’s love extends to all people and excludes no one, Pope Francis said.

“By your actions and your approach, your way of looking at things, your desires and above all your sensitivity, you discredit and defuse the kind of talk that is intent on sowing division, on excluding or rejecting those who are not ‘like us,'” the pope said Jan. 24 during the official ceremony welcoming him to World Youth Day in Panama.

Michael Lagonigro

If you Google “save my Catholic marriage,” one of the top search results is for the Retrouvaille Marriage Help Program for Struggling Couples.

Michael Lagonigro can attest to the program’s strength. Lagonigro and his wife, Theresa, attended a weekend-long Retrouvaille session in 2005 after hitting a bump in their marriage.

“By Sunday morning, I knew we were going to be OK,” said Lagonigro, a parishioner of St. John in Westminster.

Lagonigro believes his faith was strengthened through Retrouvaille.
