Gaudium et spes, 48


in ,

The intimate partnership of married life and love has been established by the Creator and qualified by His laws and is rooted in the conjugal covenant of irrevocable personal consent.

In marriage, spouses give and accept each other, forming a lasting relationship. The sacred bond willed by God gives direction and purpose to Christian marriage. Do I really understand the responsibilities and the greatness of the Sacrament of Marriage?

God, my loving Father, thank you for the sacrament of marriage, through which you continue your creative work. Help us recognize the sacredness of this sacrament. Amen.
