Carré condensed into a single maxim that he would always repeat to couples during their wedding cerimony: "spouses forever, remaining engaged." And how do you manage to stay loyal to your spouse a whole lifetime? Through love in the rituals of every day: by a kiss, a greeting, a hug and a thousand gestures that are rituals and that should never become routine. The Rector Major in the Strenna for 2017 invites building a family through the rituals of every day, by living "a love that is faithful, everlasting and open to life."
