The Evaluation of Mark Gungorâ€™s Seminar â€œLaugh Your Way to a Better Marriageâ€? in Accordance with the Communion of the Spouses as a â€œcommunio personarumâ€?
The article raises the issue that Catholic spouses are called to build their lives on the principles of the communion of persons as â€œcommunio personarumâ€?, therefore it is necessary to evaluate whether Mark Gungorâ€™s seminar â€žLaugh your way to a better marriageâ€œ is an appropriate mean for the preparation of fiancÃ©s for the celebration of the sacrament of marriage and the strengthening of the communion of spouses. The author theoretically clears out the principles of the communion of spouses, based on which the parameters for evaluation are prepared. Following the evaluation of the seminar, the conclusions are provided that the seminar is not an appropriate mean neither for the preparation of fiancÃ©s nor the strengthening of the communion of Catholic spouses. The recommendations to the institutions of the Catholic Church in Lithuania for the use of the seminar are provided as well.
