While the stories presented are romantic in nature, the challenges each couple face and deal with are also discussed, which adds to the excitement of each story. The struggles vary. There is one story in which the woman is totally uninterested in the man initially, but his persistence pays off. Another story depicts the obstacles a previously married couple faces. Yet another focuses on the difficulties of a long-distance relationship.
Come My Beloved captured my heart, as it depicts stories of enduring love, based on Catholic teaching and Catholic values. Each couple honestly shares their love for God and how their relationship is based on that love. Each of the stories is faith-building, uplifting, inspirational, humorous, romantic, and hopeful. Each one left me with a sense of peace, joy, and hopefulness about the vocation of Catholic marriage.
I believe Come My Beloved is a valuable treasure for those who are discerning the vocation of marriage and it is uplifting reading for all those who enjoy a good love story.
I can’t express how much I enjoyed reading about the varied and unique ways that the couples in the book were brought together. I loved that they each relied on God’s guidance to find not only a spouse, but a soulmate. In its own way, each story reveals God’s creativeness, His unpredictability, and, of course, His loving plan. Together the stories illustrate the importance of entrusting our relationships to God even before they begin.
A vocation to marriage is not an easy path of flawless communication, perfect trust, and romantic candlelight dinners. It takes work and commitment and faith in God to make a marriage what it should truly be- a self-giving, self-sacrificing relationship of love. The stories in Come My Beloved speak to these truths as well as any theological thesis or philosophical discourse ever could. And they’re a whole lot more fun to read!
In a culture that does everything to discourage self-sacrifice and sacramental marriage, this book gives hope that God is still at work. Come My Beloved entertained me and, even more, it inspired me to look at my own marriage anew and reminded me to appreciate the gift that the sacrament of marriage truly is.
