hope for single catholics 30+: tobit, sarah, tobiah & raphael

The story of the Book of Tobit is one of great hope for those who find
themselves single (never-married, divorced, widowed) past the age
when many peers are married. If we cooperate with the Lord, God
wants to work in our lives, today, the same kinds of healing and
restoration that He worked in the lives of Tobit, Sarah, and Tobiah;
allowing the Godly desires of our hearts to be fulfilled.
