True love: A step-by-step guide

10 Mar 2016 | Michael McVeigh

God sees every person in the world as special. So for God the relationships we form with each other are equally precious. This means we need to approach the people we’re attracted to ways that respect both their dignity and their vulnerability. Because true love isn’t just the end goal of a romantic relationship – it’s the road we follow to get there.

But the workers there believe all the services, support and programs in the world can’t begin to help a family, if no one is willing to listen to their story.
