Prayer for Troubled Marriages: St Rita, make us understand that a vocation in not only a matter of attraction. Enable us to see clearly that it is also a matter of finding in ordinary events, God's will for us and then accepting it even if it seems to be baffling and contrary to our wishes. Teach those called by the Lord to the married state to reflect deeply on the delicate choices that will influence their destiny. Let them not be deceived by their feelings; instead, let them look for the solid qualities that keep a home united in the joy of the Lord. Teach unhappy spouses the power of patience and mildness. Let them not give way to discouragement but, like you, let them endeavor to save both the happiness of their home and the soul of their spouse. St Rita, we pray this prayer through you and in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

It is important that we understand what our faith teaches. Our US Bishops have a couple resources that you can tap for catechesis. The US Catholic Catechism for Adults is a companion to the larger document that was published several years ago. There are several videos you can view on the website. The link is here.
Another important avenue is the emphasis on personal witness. We need to tell others and witness to others what being a Catholic is all about. The Bishops have a document called "Disciples Called to Witness". You can see this right here.
