AP:Catholics begin campaign on marriage

U.S. Roman Catholic bishops began a campaign Wednesday to strengthen the institution of marriage by encouraging spouses to perform simple day-to-day gestures for one another.

The campaign, a series of radio and television spots, is part of a broader effort to bring a greater Catholic voice to the debate over the meaning of marriage.

The spots show ordinary people in parks and other public places answering the question “What have you done for your marriage today?” The answers ”” waking up early with the baby, organizing a date night ”” are meant to promote small acts of kindness as medicine for making marriages last a lifetime.

Read it all.

    A worthy endeavor. My wife and I will be celebrating 23 years of wedded bliss (well, some years of bliss, and some of not-so-much, but overall, definately bliss) in July. It’s been a wonderful time.
