Tropical Storm Yagi (Karding) struck the Philippines over the weekend, August 12, 2018, but it didn’t stop us from charging to the lovely city of Tagaytay for the Art of Marriage formation. Eight couples braved the heavy rain excited to receive the said formation. The activity started with a mass at 8am, followed by the first session on the Art of Marriage, and the Joy of Loving formation in the afternoon. Once the session began it was all excitement and awe as these couples were introduced to the origin and the reasons of marriage, and the challenges of (daily) love.
The formation ended with the sharing of the fruit of each couple. Many were helped by being reminded of the importance of dialogue between the couple. All eight couples promised to return to Verbum Dei Apostolate Center in Tagaytay on August 26 and every last Sunday of the month thereafter for their monthly follow up session with the misioneras.
The Art of Marriage is part of the project of Verbum Dei Philippines in promoting its apostolic centers and retreat houses. Our next assignment will be at Verbum Dei Apostolate Center in Banawa, Cebu on September 23, 2018, and in Verbum Dei Apostolate Center in Pasig the month afterwards. Hope to see you there!
