About-

This book is a look at the spirituality of marriage through the lens of Christian spirituality. It will help you see how your faith and spirituality is lived out daily in your marriage, not just in the churchy activities you may attend. Through looking at grace, vocation, community, asceticism, incarnation, discernment, dying, and rising, you will see more fully the holiness of what you are already living in your marriage, as well as some ways that you can enhance and support that holiness. The term “holiness” may not be used that often when it comes to marriage, but when you begin to see God's presence everywhere, it is clear that your life is holy—that is, drenched in God—indeed.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Why would anyone wish to promise themselves unconditionally to another fallible and broken human being? In this gem of a book Kathleen Finley helps us see why this counter-intuitive marital commitment offers a beguiling path for spiritual growth and blessing. Written in beautiful yet accessible language that edifies and challenges, this simple book weaves together insights from the Christian tradition, personal testimony, and the surprisingly relevant witness of those who have gone before us."
--Richard R. Gaillardetz, author of A Daring Promise: A Spirituality of Christian Marriage

"Very deep, comprehensive, and true. . . . Foundational book that would be a treasure for couples who want to take their marriage to a deeper level and recognize the holy in it."
--Susan Vogt, former editor of the journal of National Association of Catholic Family Life Ministers

"The family systems truism that nothing happens to just one person in the system comes through loud and clear, and that articulating the firm foundation of the marriage helps make it survive."
--Kathy Beirne, co-author of Catholic & Newly Married

"Holy Together is a remarkably engaging and timely reflection on the opportunities for married couples to grow in holiness. Kathleen's transparency about her own marriage with her husband and her several decades of classroom experience make for a very credible and practical challenge of appreciating how everyday living in marriage can be a continuing source of enrichment and deepening spirituality."
--William Skylstad, Bishop Emeritus of Spokane

"Kathleen Finley has written an inspired and very personal description of how to connect the basic features of Christian faith with married life. Her words are timely, well-researched, and deftly applied first to her own marriage, but in a way that also allows readers to connect them to their own marital experience. Married life these days is challenging yet it can also be seen as a source of a deep spiritual life, a true path to holiness. Many will find inspiration for themselves in this wonderful book."
--David M. Thomas, retired Professor of Religion and Family Life, Regis University, Denver
