Habits for a Healthy Marriage: A Handbook for Catholic Couples
Dr Richard Fitzgibbons
Drawing on his experience of forty years as a psychiatrist, Dr Fitzgibbons presents twelve habits that can foster healing and growth in Catholic marriages. This book helps couples to identify and resolve the major emotional conflicts that weaken their relationships and hurt their marriages.
Habits for a Healthy Marriage is unique because it draws on the field of positive psychology, which focuses on growth in virtues. Each chapter names a common marital problem along with a particular virtue that can help couples to overcome that problem. It shows that the road to healing is paved with forgiveness, not only between spouses but also within their families of origin. Along the way the author incorporates the luminous writing of Saint John Paul II on marriage and the timeless wisdom of the Catholic Church.

The Message of Amoris Laetitia: Finding Common Ground
The author shows that Amoris laetitia does not represent new teaching, but presents, on the basis of the gospel, a creative renewal of the tradition and completely corresponds to the renewed view of the Second Vatican Council concerning marriage and family.
It is also in accord with the teaching of the two previous pontificates, while simultaneously advancing them in a careful way.

Getting More Out of Marriage
