Marriage--Matrimonio

Por la Vida

"Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the Church and gave himself up for her, that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word. ... Even so husbands should love their wives as their own bodies."                    - Eph 5:25-26, 28

  The Sacrament of Matrimony comes about through a promise made by a man and a woman before God and the Church, which is accepted and confirmed by god and consummated by the bodily union of the couple. Because God himself forms the bond of sacramental marriage, it is binding until the death of one of the partners. 

    El Sacramento del Matrimonio se lleva a cabo mediante una promesa hecha ante Dios y ante la Iglesia, que es aceptada y sellada por Dios y se consuma por la unión corporal de los esposos. Dado que es Dios mismo quien forma el vínculo del matrimonio sacramental, este vínculo une hasta la muerte de uno de los contrayentes.


     God of Blessing, God of Love, in this lifelong covenant of marriage, may we always be aware of your presence. May our home be filled with the light and goodness that comes from you. May our marriage become the gift to the world you intend it to be. May our joy in each other be abundant as your joy is abundant in us. May our family reflect the image of your absolute and unfailing love. Through all trials and blessings of family life, may we turn and surrender to you in every moment, growing stronger in the faith, hope, and love that binds us ever closer to you. Grant that we may nurture in each other grace and wisdom, rooted in you while daily growing toward your heavenly kingdom. We ask this through Christ, our Lord.      Amen.

"To love a person means to see him as God intended him."                     - Francois Mauriac
