“I am Yahweh your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.                “You shall have no other gods before me.                “You shall not make for yourselves an idol, nor any image of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: you shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them, for I, Yahweh your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and on the fourth generation of those who hate me, and showing loving kindness to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.                “You shall not take the name of Yahweh your God in vain, for Yahweh will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.                “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. You shall labor six days, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to Yahweh your God. You shall not do any work in it, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your livestock, nor your stranger who is within your gates; for in six days Yahweh made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day; therefore Yahweh blessed the Sabbath day, and made it holy.                “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which Yahweh your God gives you.                “You shall not murder.                “You shall not commit adultery.                “You shall not steal.                “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.                “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

Love One Another


We would like to tell you about our experience of God’s love — a love that has accompanied us throughout all the time we have been together.


When we first came to know each other, my heart had been deeply wounded by the past. I was in search of my vocation in life, full of fear and rebellion. I begged God to help me, as I was unable to cope on my own. It was then that He gave me Sebastian. Through him the Lord has taught me to trust and to love — to believe that He loves me and that through Him all things are possible.
Our hearts — Sebastian’s and mine — felt a desire for mutual friendship. God acted in us “in concert,” as it were, and yet in a way that took account of our unique personalities. In one of our talks we discerned that God was calling us to pray together. So that is what we did. Every time we met we would find time to pray that we might know God’s will concerning us. We wanted to be together, but we did not know if this was what God had in mind for us. As we prayed together on one occasion, the Lord assured us that He would reveal His will to us in prayer, and that serenity of mind would be its fruit. It wasn’t always easy to mobilize ourselves for prayer; nor were we always able to be open to God’s will. But of one thing we were certain: prayer was the only way of achieving Love and learning the truth.
Prayer brought us closer to each other, enabling us to persevere in chastity. We wanted our love to be something beautiful, gentle and pure. We wanted to offer ourselves to each other — heart and body — on our wedding day.
We had to impose and keep rules, so as not to arouse each other lustfully. The moment one of us felt the “red light” going on, it meant STOP for both of us. At such moments we prayed for God’s grace to remain chaste.
We continued to pray. We also asked our friends and family to pray on our behalf. In the end, God revealed His plan to us. Yes — He informed us — it was indeed He who had brought us together. The love that we felt for each other was His Love. He had destined us for each other, and His blessing was upon us. Our joy knew no bounds. Now we knew that even if things got very difficult, we would overcome all obstacles through Jesus. We had certain knowledge that our love would not die, since God wished it to thrive.
We often recall and talk about those times when God enabled us to discover His will by degrees. It turns out that, even before we met each other, we had both prayed for a good husband and good wife. We had prayed for the grace of meeting our partner with the proper disposition. It is now six years since we were married. Our wedding took place on the day of John Paul II’s visit to Poland (June 5, 1999). It was truly a marvelous day — a day when, in a palpably spiritual way, we felt the presence of Jesus in our hearts. His blessing and our mutual pledge of love penetrated us to the core. He was a gift to us and we were gifts to one another.
We wish to thank God for His love, for enabling us to become “one,” united in the bonds of matrimony. We also wish to thank our parents, friends, community, priests and all those who have supported us throughout our journey.
We appeal to all young couples to struggle for pure love, not to give in the world, to entrust themselves to Jesus and allow Him to lead them along His paths. It is an inexpressible and immense happiness to be able to offer oneself to another in Almighty God’s blessing. We wish your readers strength, power and love in Jesus.
Eva & Sebastian
