Marriage: Made for a Reason

February 8, 2019

From February 7-14, 2019, we will celebrate National Marriage Week. This annual observance is a great opportunity to reflect on the gift marriage is to our Church.

The following is a brief reflection from the For Your Marriage website:

As Catholics, an understanding of God’s plan for marriage and family is an essential part of living the call to holiness. Catholic spouses are blessed with the certainty that the sacrament of marriage provides the graces necessary to become sanctified as husband and wife, father and mother. This grace endows the marriage covenant with strength and fortifies it in moments of difficulty. It also carries over into the domestic church, the home, where the family grows and becomes a witness to God’s love for others.
