Season 2, Episode 2 - Trinitarian Love
Marriage has the opportunity to be a true reflection of the Trinitarian love of God, but only if we are willing to seek God's grace into our relationship. This episode was inspired by the recent Church celebration of the Trinity and the bible readings from this celebration.
Season 2, Episode 1 - A Light to Others
We start a new season of the "Heart's Desire" by taking a look at the readings from the Mass this week on the Acts of the Apostles. Though persecuted and beaten down for their faith, the early Christians found joy in sharing God's Good News to all the world. Are we also willing to share that same light through how we live out our marriage and family life? Christ is still today needing us to witness to the world through the gift of our lives.
Season 1, Episode 20 - Ask, Seek and Knock
Based off of the gospel reading for today (March 14, 2019) from Matthew 7, Greg talks about the importance of inviting God's grace into your marriage from the very beginning. We shouldn't be looking to God only when things are at their worst, but should be seeking his help throughout our married life. Seeking and asking for God's grace is vitally important for our marital success......so don't knock it!
