Strengthening Catholic Marriages in Today's World

In a world that often embraces the disposable, Catholic marriages stand as a testament to the enduring power of commitment and faith. At, we understand the unique challenges contemporary couples face in upholding the sacrament of marriage. Let's delve into the ways Catholics can prioritize and incorporate their faith to build enduring, loving, and sacramental marriages.

Prayerful Foundation:

  • Challenge: Secular pressures can strain the foundation of a marriage.

  • Solution: Cultivate a habit of daily prayer together. Inviting God into your marriage establishes a spiritual foundation that strengthens your bond and provides guidance in times of challenge.

Sacramental Unity:

  • Challenge: Secular influences may undermine the sanctity of the sacrament.

  • Solution: Regularly participate in the sacraments, especially the Holy Eucharist. Receiving the body and blood of Christ together fosters a shared spiritual experience, reinforcing the sacred bond of marriage.

Open Communication:

  • Challenge: Modern distractions can hinder meaningful communication.

  • Solution: Prioritize quality time for open and honest conversations. Set aside moments to discuss your faith, share personal reflections, and ensure that your communication aligns with the teachings of the Church.

Community Involvement:

  • Challenge: Isolation can weaken the support system for couples.

  • Solution: Engage with your local Catholic community. Attend parish events, join faith-based groups, and seek guidance from experienced couples. Building a supportive community provides strength and encouragement.

Continuous Learning:

  • Challenge: The evolving nature of societal norms can create uncertainties.

  • Solution: Stay informed about Catholic teachings on marriage. Attend marriage enrichment programs, read literature endorsed by the Church, and seek guidance from spiritual mentors. Continuous learning fosters a deeper understanding of the sacrament.

Family Rituals:

  • Challenge: Secular values may undermine the significance of family life.

  • Solution: Establish and maintain family rituals that incorporate Catholic values. Whether it's daily prayers, Sunday Mass, or celebrating religious holidays, these rituals create a sense of unity and reinforce the importance of faith in family life.

At, we believe that a strong, sacramental marriage is not only possible but can thrive in today's world. By intentionally prioritizing faith, embracing community, and nurturing open communication, Catholic couples can build enduring marriages that withstand the tests of time. Let your marriage be a beacon of hope, love, and commitment in a world that often seeks the disposable.

Be Focused… Be Faithful… and Be Fresh!

About Me


I’m Lori Balderas, I created this podcast for those who are converting, reverting or simply want a FRESH perspective of the Catholic faith to help them to open their hearts and minds to become closer to the love and goodness of Christ.

I converted to Catholicism at the age of 49.  It was, by far, the best decision I’ve ever made! I don’t claim to be an expert or Theologian, but what I DO know is that my heart is bursting with love for the Lord and I want others to feel the same way!  

I feel impassioned and drawn to Evangelize people by sharing my experiences and transformation that have gotten me where I am today.

I will be sharing my personal conversion story and speaking with others about theirs.
