“When we were asked to serve as a Witness to Love sponsor couple it was such an honor, but we did not think that our marriage was strong enough (or we were good enough) to serve as an example for the engaged couple. We trusted in God and decided to serve. What we discovered throughout the process is that we could share our love and dedication to each other and God, and the importance of creating a loving, supportive family for our children (not in spite of our flaws, but because of them). Don’t be afraid to mentor. Your marriage is a wonderful example of what real love and relationships are, and you will be blessed by the experience.

“Our wedding was planned while we were on opposite sides of the ocean, residing in Italy and the United States. By the grace of God through the Witness to Love Program, two wonderful individuals were put on our path, our incredible mentor couple. Thanks to their guidance we grew to truly understand how faith is the foundation of marriage and will continuously strengthen throughout our lives. Together we reflected upon the pillars of Catholic Matrimony; our mentor couple bore their hearts to us preparing us for the difficult, as well as the wonderful times, ahead of us while living within the faith.”

“We had an extremely fruitful mentorship experience with our mentor couple. The advice, the conversations, the planned date, and the mentor led discussions all lead to even more appreciation of the Witness to Love process and the journey we are heading into. We are much closer to our mentors, and now have very candid, vulnerable and open conversations that we’ve never had. They feel like family more than anything now! The process helped us have deeper conversations, dialogue on things we may not have spoken about had we not done Witness to Love, and also made us think with a completely different lens and new found appreciation.”
