El libro del Diácono James Keating, Oración Conyugal: Un Camino a la Felicidad Conyugal declara que el compartido de corazones es una responsabilidad necesaria en ambos el matrimonio y oración. Si podemos aprender cuales son los elementos claves para compartir el corazón y de la misma manera los elementos claves para recibir el corazón de otra persona, entonces podemos llegar a conocer una intimidad enorme en el matrimonio y la oración.

La combinación del amor a su esposo con y en el amor de Dios es y siempre ha sido fundamental para realizar una vida de paz, creatividad, e intensidad y más, la santidad. En hecho, ni siquiera podemos entender lo que es el matrimonio a menos que veamos como Cristo amaba a su novia, la Iglesia, hasta el fin (Juan 13:1). Para los bautizados, Cristo ha unido su amor para la Iglesia al sacramento de matrimonio y el matrimonio a su amor para la Iglesia.

Deacon James Keating's book Spousal Prayer: A Way to Marital Happiness, affirms that the sharing of hearts is a necessary commitment in both marriage and prayer. If we can learn what the key elements to sharing the heart are and equally what the key elements to receiving the heart of another are, then we will know the greatest of intimacy in both prayer and marriage. The mingling of the love of spouse with and in the love of God is and has always been the foundation for a life of peace, creativity, and vibrancy, not to mention sanctity. In fact, we cannot even understand what marriage is unless we look at how Christ loved His Bride, the Church, till the end (Jn 13:1). For the baptized, Christ has joined His love for the Church to the Sacrament of Marriage and Marriage, to His love for the Church.

Each couple is called to allow Jesus to bring them into this great love of His. The couple is not supposed to do all the "work" of love; they are called to let Jesus gift them with His own spousal love. In other words, couples should let Jesus live His spousal love for the Church over again in their own love for one another. They do this by simply asking Him in prayer to do so and by sharing their needs and desires with Him. Marriage is not a "self-help" relationship; it is a deep partnership with Christ.
