Marriage week – in the spirit of perseverance in faith

This series of events held in Hungary for the eighth time now fulfils an important mission.  For many young people these days establishing a family is not a priority or often they embark upon this major life adventure filled with concern and anxiety.  During Marriage week these people are awaited by programmes where people and couples setting appealing examples try and eliminate those worries.
As on the last two occasions, this year again I was pleased to act as principal patroness of the central activities organised within this gap-filling initiative.  I was also ready to attend the conference held at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, where experts pointed out that a good marriage not only enriches us spiritually but also leads to improved health indicators and better work performance.  Therefore those who are about to make a lifetime commitment are worthy of support from the entire society.
