Host Kathleen Beckman interviews Deacon Bob and Paullette Brotherton of the Diocese of Las Cruces, New Mexico. They discuss the “Living in Love” marriage program that Deacon and Paullette have been teaching in their diocese. The discussion includes how to approach marriage as a proactive “vocation”, how to love “smarter”, being “spiritually naked” in prayer, relating rather than debating, anger, being a couple “first” and being a “living” sign. Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body provides the inspiration and motivation to live a life of total mutual self-donation. Conjugal spirituality is a sacramental couple’s way of loving.
