1. Marriage as a Sacrament, Celibacy for the Kingdom – helped me change my point of view that they are not missing out on something important. Even the session on language of sexual love was good. - A youth

2. Celibacy for the Kingdom. Because it has helped me as a priest to accept my celibacy more. - A priest

3. All sessions were good. Aspect of marriage, husband and wife related to God, Christ and Church. -A married person

4. Great Analogy of Spousal Love – understood the details of our origin, our history and our destiny. -A youth

5. Almost all! Through it I came to know how much God loves me, and the true meaning of my life, body. There was also a negative thought of sexuality so all the questions have been solved. - A youth
