Holy Matrimony

Holy Scripture affirms that man and woman were created for one another "It is not good that man should be alone." (Gen. 2:18)


The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament. (CIC can. 1055)


The sacrament of Matrimony signifies the union of Christ and the Church.  It gives the spouses the grace to love each other with the love with which Christ has loved his Church; the grace of the sacrament thus perfects the human love of the spouses, strengthens their indissoluble unity and sanctifies them on the way to eternal life.
