‘Never forget the first week of your marriage’

Elder Joseph, Abbot of the Vatopaidi Monastery on Mount Athos (+2009)

**

AN example of practical comfort and support recommended to us by our Elders experienced in giving advice, of both sexes, for difficult times is:

“Do not ever forget the first week of your marriage”.

Be the same as you were then. Nothing separates you.

MAY an Angel of the Lord go before them all the days of their lives. For you are the One who blesses and sanctifies all things, and to you we give glory, to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and for ever, and to the ages of ages.

Service of Bethrothal. Source.
