The "Passion" of Marriage: Foundation of the Family
MP3 Audio Download
Jesus gave his body for his bride at the Cross. Would it surprise you to discover that John the Apostle paints his picture of the Passion (John 19-20) with the colors of a wedding? The sacrament of Matrimony flows from and participates in the cross of Christ. Understanding marriage as a sharing in Christ’s cross will radically change how we understand “passion.” We desperately need this perspective to renew a marriage culture in the Church.
