Marriage

What is Marriage?

Marriage establishes a holy covenant among three: one man, one woman, and God himself.

Through God the Father, marriage irrevocably joins the man and woman as one flesh, thereby making them stewards of God's unitive and creative power.

Through the Son of the Father, marriage receives the dignity of a sacrament, becoming a reflection of the ever-faithful bridegroom, who loves, forgives, and lays down his life for his bride, the Church.

Through the Holy Spirit, marriage unites man and woman in an indissoluble communion of life and love.
