Advice for a Married Couple



It is important for a  married couple to grow together in their spiritual life.  They should pray together and also have the same spiritual father who can guide them as a couple.


Here is the advice form Elder Paisios,
It is for the benefit of the married couple to have the same spiritual father.  He acts in the same way as the carpenter does, when he wants to join two pieces of wood.  He cuts off the knobs, so the two pieces become smooth and can be easily collated.
It is best for all the members of the family to have the same spiritual father, so he will know their problems and be able to give proper advice to each one of them.


Reference: Elder Paisios of the Holy Mountain, p 130 - 131
