Paradisus Dei - Steve Bollman Paradisus Dei - Steve Bollman

Paradisus Dei (Latin for the Paradise of God) is an organization of lay Catholics dedicated to finding God in the midst of their marriages and everyday family life. It began in 1997 simply as a letter to a friend whose marriage was in trouble and quickly blossomed into a whole theology relating to the union between husband and wife. In 1999 five couples began meeting in homes to discuss this theology in light of Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body, St. Maximillian Kolbe's mystical insights into Our Lady's relationship to the Holy Spirit and Fr. Marie-Dominque Philippe's contemplative insights into the Gospel of St. John.

Who do we work and write for? For the ordinary. For the seeker who is confused about the possibility of truth itself. For ordinary Christians who make up so much of the Church and the ordinary persons outside the Church. For those of us who cannot pretend to be saints, because we know ourselves too well, and yet who cannot return to a life without Christ, His wondrous reconcilation, His Eucharistic liturgy and Word of God. It is precisely this ordinariness with all our flaws and daily struggles, which we consecrate to Him.

If you are already married God bless you too. Be proud of the fact that you are together. Don't let society get you down with its views on love and commitment. Those who don't have love these days don't seem to want anyone else to experience love. Those who can't make a commitment themselves don't believe that anyone else can either. Pay them no mind - rejoice in the relationship you have with each other and thank God for it.
