Encounter at the Post Office

by | Jul 31, 2013 | Marriage Prep

Friday 5:25 pm, at the local post office, two last customers in a hurry and three post office employees ready to pack up and leave.

While I was weighing and stamping my tubes and large envelopes containing the Rocky Mountain Catholic Men’s Conference’s posters and flyers, the post office employee looking at the return address says out loud: “Ah, Catholic Marriage Prep!”
The other customer, a young lady sending packages to an APO destination, turns and says: “I just got married!” Everybody says: “Congratulations.”
She continues :”We did the Online Catholic Marriage Prep program with Christine and Christian!”
I was dumfounded and said:” WOW! So nice to meet you, I am Christian!”
They had completed their program in March or April and her husband had been deployed five weeks after their wedding. They had both loved the program, her husband was extremely happy with it!
We chitchatted a bit more, her eyes were wet when we parted.
What were our chances to meet an engaged couple who took the Online Catholic Marriage Prep with us? One in a million? This was a nice encouragement!

Christian Meert

I was born and raised in Morocco in a Catholic family. One of my uncles was a Franciscan priest and his sister a Franciscan Missionary of Mary, both in Morocco. I am the youngest of three boys. My eldest brother passed in 2011 and my other brother lives in Montpellier, France, with his family. I received my Masters in International Business in Montpellier, France, in 1976, and worked as the Regional Director of an American ag company for 15 years. I traveled all over the world: mainly Europe, Africa and Middle East. I am happily married to Christine since 1977 and we have five daughters and fourteen grandchildren so far. In 1990, our family joined the Catholic Community of the Beatitudes, in France, of which we were a part of for fifteen years. We started the House of the Community in Denver at the call of Archbishop Chaput in 1999. In 2004 Christine and I founded CatholicMarriagePrep.com, and then left the Community to dedicate ourselves to our ministry. We have been the Directors of the Office of Marriage and Family Life for the Diocese of Colorado Springs since 2005. In 2010, we became American citizens. I love fly-fishing, hiking and gardening!
