Thank you for being part of our Witness to Love Family. With your help, Witness to Love is on a mission to renew the Church through relationships.  Thank you for your leadership in forming the next generation of Catholic families. Together, we are transforming the Church by growing thriving communities, virtuous marriages, and faithful families.

This past year was one of impactful growth for Witness to Love with opportunities to serve and to witness. Witness to Love was invited to speak at the 2021 global Vatican forum on marriage to over 350 leaders from around the globe. A journey that began ten years ago with desperation and openness to the Holy Spirit’s guidance, is now firmly rooting engaged couples and their mentors in church communities around the world. These couples are the key to transforming the next generation of Catholic families in parishes throughout the United States and beyond.

What are we asking of you today? We would love for you to take a moment to flip through the pages of our new Witness to Love Roadmap (formerly the Case for Support), in which we share where we have been these past ten years, where we are today, and where  we invite you to join us in the years to come. We want you to know of our commitment as a partner to you along with each and every parish and diocese we work with throughout the United States and beyond.

Witness Couple Testimonies

 

“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.”  

WTL Couple: Lucia and Michael Italy/United States

 

“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.”

Witness to Love is Renewing the Church Through Relationships

 

Forming evangelizing spouses is the primary initiative of Witness to Love as we continue to renew the Church through relationships. Witness to Love is committed to creating and sustaining an International Marriage Movement dedicated to forming Evangelizing Spouses that are opening the doors to the Domestic Church around our nation and beyond. During these uncertain times of social isolation, our Domestic Church is in even greater need of witnessing to our relationship with God and others. This is our time as married couples to shine and be the light to those in our communities that desperately need to see Sacramental Love that is always a free, total, faithful and fruitful covenant and gift to all!

“To feel love one must feel that someone has been waiting for them!”

~Mother Elvira, Cenacolo Community

 

Want to Help Create a “Be Light” Community?

 

The Be Light 5 Year Marriage Enrichment Movement is a five year Marriage Enrichment (Mystogia) movement that draws married couples closer together in Christ while being transformed into family missionary disciples within their own communities. This path not only supports newly married couples during the fundamental first five years of their marriage but also helps all married couples in a community to open their hearts to the powerful way God remains present to them and in the Holy bond of Matrimony. The five year sequence builds upon the opportunities for growth and fulfillment that takes place over and over again in the intimate and personal way Christ encounters married couples in their interactions together. Visit our website for more information on the Be light Movement at https://witnesstolove.org/belight/
