"The family that lives the requirement of love and forgiveness to the full becomes the main bulwark of the civilization of love and the hope for the future of humanity." - Saint John Paul II

"The mission of the Institute for Marital Healing is to strengthen Catholic marriages and families by educating spouses, marital therapists and clergy about common causes of conflicts in marital self-giving and effective approaches to alleviating such conflicts. Through a combination of online resources, educational programs and publications, the Institute employs a time-tested approach to marital therapy that recognizes the importance of both science and faith in the process of marital healing. We provide an empirically proven approach for resolving marital anger, the most common conflict which leads couples to seek marriage counseling. We demonstrate a sensitivity to the Catholic faith of couples and show how their faith can assist them in the strengthening of their marriages."
