In a previous post I shared an article that touched on Christian marriage.
Now I’d like to share 10 quotes.
“But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.” ~ Jesus
“The Church has taught through the ages that marriage is an exclusive relationship between one man and one woman.” ~ United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
“Marriage is a road to personal holiness, to witness and to evangelization in the world.” ~ St. John Paul II
“If a man and a woman marry in order to be companions on the journey from earth to heaven, then their union will bring great joy to themselves and to others.” ~ St. John Chrysostom
“Authentic married love is caught up into divine love… Thus this love can lead spouses to God…” and in God they find the strength to carry on their roles and responsibilities. ~ Second Vatican Council
“Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, be subject to your husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. As the church is subject to Christ, so let wives also be subject in everything to their husbands.” ~ St. Paul
“Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her… Even so husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no man ever hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body.” ~ St. Paul
“The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring.” ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church
“Marriage is a vocation, a call from God, to two people to become one, to found a home, and to beget, bear, and raise children. In this glorious and hard vocation, husbands and wives are called to become saints and to do all in their power to make saints of their children.” ~ Catherine Doherty
“The human family on earth is the image of the Holy Family in heaven.” ~ St. Charbel Makhlouf
