Vocation of Married Life

What the world think about marriage

John 2:1-12
The Author of Married Life
● “The intimate
community of life and
love which constitute
the married state has
been established by
the Creator and
endowed by him with
its proper laws ... God
himself is the author
of marriage.” Gadium
et Spes 48
Marriage in the plan of Salvation
● “[...]After the fall, marriage helps to overcome
self-absorption, egoism, pursit of one's own
pleasure, and to open oneself to the other, to
mutual aid and to self-giving.”-CCC 1609
God's call for men in marriage
● God who created man out of love also calls him
to love – the fundamental and innate vocation of
every human being. For man is created in the
image and likeness of Gdo who is himself love.
Since God created him man and woman, their
mutual love becomes an image of the absolute
and unfailing love with which God loves man ...
And this love which God blesses is intended to
be fruitful and to be realized in the common
work of watching over creation. - CCC 1604
John 13:34-35
● A new comandment I give to you, that you love
one another; even as I have loved you, that you
also love one another. By this all men will know
that you are my disciples, if you have love for
one another.
