More than a civil union, marriage for Catholics is a sacrament – an outward sign of inward grace – instituted by Christ. Not simply the joining of two people, marriage is the intimate union of three – God at the center – in a lifetime covenant of love, fidelity, and mutual support. Marriage, like baptism, is lived out over a lifetime, with daily committment. Through God’s grace, the steadfast and selfless love between husband and wife becomes symbolic of the faithful, abundant, steadfast, and sacrificial love of Christ for His Church.
Congratulations! This is an exciting time – the start of a new adventure together – a life oriented towards each other and Christ.
