Synod Fathers Call For Ending “Pre-Cana” in Favor of More Intensive Marriage Preparation | Aleteia.org

While I don't doubt that this may be a good idea, it's going to be a really tough job for parish priests to sell it to engaged couples. I would be surprised if it didn't result in a great number of them choosing to forgo a Catholic marriage ceremony in favour of something 'easier'. Not so sure that this is what the Synod fathers are intending. 



Any thoughts on the subject?

    I've got a recently engaged son, getting married next summer in the Church. He works in Windsor, she lives in Parry Sound. They will be lucky to even be together, in the same town, for a regular marriage course. People are very mobile today. You have to meet young people where they are at.The intensive marriage course idea is not a good idea. We need to be putting more importance on the sacrament and the sacramental nature of marriage MUCH earlier, and with a bigger voice. Don't break down marriage, instead, build it up!
