to the Hungarian edition of Hand in Hand
by Gabriel Calvo

„I warmly recommend Hand in Hand to Hungarian readers. On the one hand because the author, Father Calvo - whom I have had the chance to meet several times - is a clear, true person; on the other hand, because he is a priest who has been working and praying for marriage and family for half a century, travelling without rest all around the world, and speaking to lots and lots of people and listening perhaps to even more. He is familiar not only with the marriage of Spain or America but also with the marriage of different continents including the marriage of Central Eastern Europe.

He uses not the language of a scholar but speaks in a direct way, like an elderly brother to his younger brother. Not only does he teach but he also asks questions, makes the readers think and encourages them to act.

Now we have one more excellent Catholic book, a book worthy of the weight of marriage. Marriage can only be spoken about seriously. This book tells deep truths in a form that is easily understandable for everybody. It helps young readers to prepare for marriage in a worthy way, but it can be used by married couples, too. It also presents valuable help for priests in the pastoral care primarily for engaged couples but also for married couples”.

"God created man and woman to give meaning, life and love to the universe. He created marriage "to His image and likeness", and God is not a circle. He is the spiraling foundation of Life and Love.

The quest for happiness in marriage demands that you expand your vision and perspective beyond your marital relationships. You are challenged by today's society to stop being a selfish and isolated married couple. And you are called by the Creator to depart from your conjugal and family love, and go towards the universal love.

You, as a married couple, have been born to become a loving spiral of love!"
