witnesstoloveWhen marriage is in the headlines it is often an issue of controversy, contention, confusion and pain. Mary Rose and Ryan Verret are doing something to counter that trend. They are the founders of Witness to Love, a marriage prep renewal ministry now present in diocese around the country.

Can Catholic marriage be saved? (Yes!) How does marriage mentoring work? What difference does it make? In conversation with Kathryn Jean Lopez, the Verrets will get practical and inspiring for anyone involved in marriage prep, renewal, married, or knows anyone who is married and wants to be a better support.
