A husband full of grace should speak to his wife like this:
I have taken you in my arms, and I love you, and I prefer you to my life itself. For the present life is nothing, and my most ardent dream is to spend it with you in such a way that we may be assured of not being separated in the eternal life reserved for us…. I place your love above all things, and nothing would be more bitter or painful to me than to be of a different mind than you.
Unfortunately, our day by day words prove that we are empty of God’s grace.
Based on Saint John Chrysostom
