I am delighted to support this simple but highly significant and innovative resource. I AM WITH YOU Year A, is not just the final volume in a trilogy of reflections for spouses on the weekly scripture readings for Sunday Mass. The entire work, so lovingly undertaken and generously offered to the Catholic community by these faithful married couples comes at a time when the need to restore and affirm the true nature of matrimonial love has never been so acute in our contemporary culture.

It is as always, to the sacred Word of God which we must turn for sustenance, inspiration and encouragement.
