Charism of the Community for Difficult Marriages SYCHAR: It’s members wish to heal the sacramental marriage, which is in crisis. Working jointly with Jesus Christ – God in every situation, it is possible to revive a marriage. For God nothing is impossible. The truth of sacramental marriage means that despite an inability of spouses staying together and being in a state of separation, which is to mean living in separate apartments, their marriage – a sacramental covenant between themselves and God – continues. They remain Husband and Wife, and as such will stand before God. The sacrament of marriage is a gift from God, who gives spouses the strength to kindle a proper relationship in any situation. Charism of the Community for Difficult Marriages SYCHAR is faithful to Conjugal love, which was founded by the sacramental spouses.

The words of the Lord Jesus leave us no doubt:
“Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood,
you have no life in you” (J 6:53)
How much of that life we have in ourselves here on earth, is the only amount we will take with us into the world of eternity. And we will have to spend a very long time in purgatory, to come to the fullness of life, to the measure of heaven.
“Every one of you, young friends, find your own Westerplatte* in your life, Some dimension of tasks that you need to undertake and fulfill. A good case, you just cannot not fight for. An obligation, duty which you must not avoid. You cannot desert from it. Finally – some order of truths and values that you need to maintain and defend, just like Westerplatte, inside and around yourself. Yes, defend – for yourself and for others”.
(John Paul II, Homily during Liturgy of the Word addressed to the young people gathered at Westerplatte, Gdańsk, 12 June 1987)
* Battle of Westerplatte in September 1939 became a symbol of the defense of the Polish people against invasion
