What makes a successful family? Is it merely fulfilling the bare minimum of our obligations, teaching our children prayers, ensuring the family goes to Sunday Mass, but not much else? In the midst of the modern world, is it even possible to think that a family could do much more?


In this profound, and yet easy-to-read book, Fr. Alain Delagneau considers what makes a successful family and how to achieve it. Starting with the basics, this book begins by examining the Sacrament of Marriage and ends with a look at those things which will disrupt the harmony of your Catholic home. Chapters include:

  • The Sacrament of Marriage
  • The Harmonious Union of the Spouses
  • Conjugal Love: Its Friends, Its Enemies
  • Catholic Education
  • Some Family Virtues
  • May Catholic Spouses Consider Separation?
  • The Spiritual Life of the Home
  • Human Equilibrium
  • Friends or Enemies of the Christian Home
  • Conclusion



This short book, written by a priest with over 30 years of pastoral experience, is a powerful antidote to the World, the Flesh, and the Devil, which seek to corrupt Catholic homes and destroy souls. Whether you have been married for only a few days, or are nearing the twilight of your married lives, this book is for you, and will certainly show you to how to live the Catholic family life ordained by God, and by which we will save our souls, and the souls of those we love the most.
