.- The television network EWTN in March will begin airing a television series for spouses suffering marriage problems to help them renew their marriages.

The series “Marriage Works in Christ: Broken and Blessed” is hosted by Fr. James Dean and Greg and Julie Alexander, the married founders of the Alexander House.

After an overview episode, each new installment will feature a couple who has experienced significant turmoil in their marriage. According to a press release, the couple will first discuss how an issue strained their marriage and then share how God worked in their lives to restore unity and joy to their marital union.

“We live in a society that has lost hope in the vocation of marriage,” Greg Alexander said, explaining the relevance of the series. “We want the world to see that marriage can be beautiful if we live it according to the way that God designed it.  If we participate in the sacrament the way that God intended, all the grace we need is available in order to live peaceful, joy-filled marriages.”

Father Dean explained that Greg and Julie have gained “wonderful insights” about troubled marriages though their own experience and through helping over a thousand couples repair their own marriages.

“This series will not only give couples hope, it will also give them insights into how to resolve their problems,” he said.

Following a painful time in their marriage, their marital renewal led them to found The Alexander House, a non-profit organization intended to help understand the meaning of marriage from a godly perspective. The Alexanders lead marriage enrichment workshops, “coach” troubled couples, and help couples understand and follow the teachings of the Catholic Church on marriage.

Julie said she and her husband are sharing what God has done for them.

“By inviting God into our lives and our marriage and by learning about His plan, we have experienced the joy of an amazing marriage. In the Scriptures when Jesus heals people, they go and share what God has done for them. Our family was restored and our marriage was renewed.”

“Marriage Works in Christ: Broken and Blessed” will debut on EWTN on March 4. It will air on Wednesdays at 11:30 pm and Thursdays at 2:30 am Eastern time.
