Most people would agree that marriage today is in crisis. What is usually overlooked—even by those married in the Church—is that God intended marriage to be a sacrament. The Lord wants couples to rely on his promise to be present in their day-to-day lives, and he wants to give them the grace to live out a covenantal love that mirrors the love of the Trinity.
Rather than simply a defense of marriage, this book presents the “good news” about sacramental marriage. Cardinal Donald Wuerl uses his years of pastoral experience and his gift of teaching to give hope and courage to both engaged couples and those married for many years—and to anyone thinking about the meaning or vocation of marriage.
• Features short vignettes written by married couples living out their vocation in the good and hard times.
• Useful for marriage preparation or for any Catholic confused about the debates on marriage going on today.
