“Since God created man and woman, their mutual love becomes an image of the absolute and unfailing love with which God loves [all people]. It is good, very good, in the Creator’s eyes. And this love which God blesses is intended to be fruitful and to be realized in the common work of watching over creation.” Catechism of the Catholic Church # 1604
The vocation to marriage is a call and gift of God to a life of holiness and of service in the world within the loving relationship shared by the couple and in their family. From that centre of the heart a couple is called to follow Jesus in a particular way and it invites and challenges them to live out their life together in ways that express God’s love and truth in the world.
