I haven’t had a lot of time to put into this week’s 101 Wednesday.
I have decided to give you the Church’s teaching on marriage in one sentence. Here is a paragraph from the universal catechism. It’s so meaty! One sentence that can easily be broken down into a 2-hour presentation! (I know. We’ve done it and run out of time!)
1601 “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; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament.
I love how “whole and holy” God’s plan for marriage is and I love how consistently the Church upholds it. I thank God for the Church’s unwavering stand for marriage. One day I may write a little more about it!
