Retrouvaille helps troubled marriages
Retrouvaille is a program for married couples who are in troubled marriages or contemplating divorce.
Retrouvaille is for couples who feel bored, frustrated, or angry in their marriage. Some experience coldness and simply shut down. Others experience conflict and arguments in their relationship. Most don't know how to change the situation or even how to communicate with their spouse about it. This program has helped couples experiencing marital difficulty at all levels including disillusionment and deep misery.
On September 26, 2008 Pope Benedict XVI addressed an audience in Rome on the Retrouvaille program. He was impressed by the couples and priests who devote the time to help other couples in a state of marital crisis. "You are not professionals; you are married couples who have yourselves lived these same difficulties and overcome them through God's grace and the support of Retrouvaille and therefore feel the desire and the joy to put your experience at the service of others." The pope said that with God's grace and the support of other couples involved in Retrouvaille, marriages can become stronger and more mature.
