Those called to matrimony live especially close to the unity and fruitful love that exists between Christ and the Church.
In fact, those who receive this sacrament, by reason of their state and rank in life, have their own special gift among the People of God. From their lovemaking comes forth new citizens of the world, those who will also ultimately live in the light.
This family setting is its own kind of Church, a sort of “domestic” Church. In this household setting, where relationships are the stuff of daily life, for better or for worse, members ought to witness to each other and teach each other to listen to the Spirit prompting them in their hearts.
