Cana 40 

A Marriage Strengthening & Conditioning Program

Cana 40 is a 40-day program for couples, most often undertaken during Lent or Advent, but can be done anytime.  Its purpose is as it says, strengthening and conditioning your marriage.  This is a program similar to the popular Exodus 90, but specifically for married couples.  It aides couples in focusing on improvement in your spiritual life as a couple, your communication with God and each other, and your growth in intimacy as you delve more deeply into who your spouse is at his/her core.  

If you are looking for a program that will take your relationship to a deeper level, Cana 40 is for you!

Cana 40 for Lent 2020

Strengthening & Conditioning for Your Marriage

 

For 40 days add the following Spiritual additions to your life:

 

  1. Accountability to one another - 1/week visit with each other for a minimum of 30 minutes sharing how Cana 40 is going and any benefits that you have seen.

  2. Make 1 Holy Half Hour by yourself and one Holy Half Hour together each week.

  3. Weekly Focus - A short video and a link to a podcast will be emailed each Sunday of Lent.  Watch the video, listen to the podcast, and determine, as a couple, how you will implement the content into your marriage and family with concrete goals. (If you have not signed up for the content, simply to the Contact Us page and sign up. 

  4. Daily Focus - At the end of the day do an examination of your day to review how you did on your weekly goal.

  5. Confession - 1/week

  6. Set your alarm to wake up 20 minutes earlier than usual.  Spend 15 minutes in prayer 3 days/week and 15 minutes in exercise 3 days/week.  

  7. Pray the Rosary daily, occasionally using a Rosary mediation guide.

 

 

For 40 days fast and abstain from the following:

 

  1. Abstain from meat on Wednesdays and Fridays while fasting for the spiritual needs of your spouse (2 small meals that when combined do not equal the 3rd meal.)

  2. No desserts, sweets, in-between meals, or alcohol except on Sundays [Instead, get moving.  Go for a walk together, do jumping jacks, vacuum, etc.]

  3. No useless surfing on computer or phone (Work and school needs only) [Read a book together, work on a puzzle together or play a game with the family]

  4. No tv/movies/sports except on Sundays. [Instead, see above]

  5. No music except that which lifts your heart to God. 

You can do this!  And you'll be so glad that you did!! We are in a time like no other in history that couples must strengthen and condition their marriages to stay the course to Heaven and to grow along the way! 

You got this!

Benedicite!
