This week we went over the Sacrament of
Marriage. Christ’s grace protects the essential
purposes of marriage—the good of the couple and the generation and education of children. These goods are protected and fostered by the permanence of the marriage bond and mutual fidelity of a man and a woman. The Church declares every valid sacramental consummated marriage to be indissoluble and obliges marital fidelity between the spouses. By their mutual fidelity, the spouses make present the love of Christ and lead each other to greater holiness through the grace they receive from the Sacrament. The fruitfulness of married love includes the moral, spiritual and faith life the parent hands on to their children. However, not all couples can have children. “Spouses to whom God has not granted children can nevertheless have a conjugal life full of meaning…[and] can radiate a fruitfulness of charity, of hospitality and of sacrifice.” CCC 1654
February 9th at 3:30 p.m. in the Chapel.
