Many feel the need to place in relief that marriage and the family are the ambient where Christian life is lived and basic Christian virtues are cultivated, where the spouses practise love of God, of each other and of neighbour and thus grow in sanctity. George Kaitholil clearly shows that marriage is a genuine path to perfection. He establishes convincingly and delightfully that family life is a divine call, a fertile ground where the majority of the people work, suffer, love, serve, struggle and grow in holiness. The book is made lively by the sharing of his own experiences and those others have shared with him. His positive approach to sexuality as a means to sanctiﬁcation is enlightening and joyful. This book will deﬁnitely help couples and would-be couples to understand and love their vocation and to live it happily.
