.- A new book recently released by Ave Maria Singles, an online service for “faith-filled, marriage-minded” Catholics, explores the stories of 25 married couples who have met over the increasingly popular internet site. The book strives to dispel the negative image associated with on-line relationships and shows the ways God has used this new medium for tremendous good. Ave Maria Singles website clarifies that they are not an online dating service, but rather a service for those serious Catholics looking toward marriage.

Anthony J. Buono, president of Ave Maria Singles shares in the book’s introduction that the stories show that, “romance blossomed and flourished among Catholics of different ages, ethnicities and backgrounds, situations, and often from great distances.”

He says, “the Internet is a modern technological wonder that has the power to connect people who otherwise would have absolutely no way to come into contact with each other.”

The book is said to be aimed at showing the hope in a massive industry in which the unpleasant stories “seem to be more readily available than success stories.”

So far, Ave Maria Singles has led to 318 marriages and is currently celebrating 121 engagements.
