St Josemaria Escriva believed that "those who are called to the married state will, with the grace of God, find within their state everything they need to be holy, to identify themselves each day more with Jesus Christ, and to lead those with whom they live to God" (Conversations with Saint Josemaria, no. 91).
The new edition of the Novena for a Happy and Faithful Marriage is a publication from the St. Josemaria Institute inspired by St Josemaria's desire to help all married couples, and those preparing for marriage, to find meaning and encouragement in their vocations, especially when facing inevitable difficulties and times of trial.
The Novena for a Happy and Faithful Marriage includes:
An introduction on how to pray the novena
Daily reflections from St Josemaria Escriva’s “Marriage: A Christian Vocation"
Prayer for the day for the married and for the engaged
Prayer for the Family through the intercession of St Josemaria
