With wedding season upon us, many couples who come to witness the marriage of family members and friends are themselves thinking about marriage. This talk was given to engaged couples last Fall as part of their preparation for marriage in the Catholic Church.
This talk begins by exploring what the Church understands marriage to be based on the Holy Scriptures. Afterwards, it looks at what the Catholic Church teaches about indissolubility, procreation of children and mutual and lasting fidelity within marriage. Finally, this talk offers some thoughts on the need for prayer in marriage.
My hope is that this talk can help couples in preparing for marriage in the Church. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns arising from this talk. firstname.lastname@example.org
