Since God created him man and woman, their mutual love becomes an image of the absolute unfailing love with which God loves man. It is good, very good, in the Creator’s eyes.

CCC 1604

We are created “by God, for God”. Therefore, it is imperative that we take our vocation to prayer, taking the time to ask and understand what God is asking of us.

The vocation to marriage is a beautiful means by which man and woman can manifest the love Christ has for his bride, the Church.  As man and woman come together as spouses, with openness to life, they become participants in the wonder of God’s creation.

The Catechism teaches that preparation for marriage should be ongoing throughout childhood, in the home, in the family and within the Catholic community.  Children learn so much from observing the adult relationships that are around them. Parents then, have a responsibility to model Christ’s self-sacrificial love to each other that St Paul describes in his well known First Letter to the Corinthians;

Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

1 Corinthians 13
