A Definition of a Christian Marriage

 

Marriage is a union by which a man and woman establish between themselves an intimate partnership for their whole lives, and which of its own nature is ordered to the well being of the spouses and to the procreation and upbringing of children.

Christian marriage finds its origin in the story of Genesis where man and woman are created for one another and where their love is intended to be fruitful and realised in the common work of watching over creation.

Since God, who is himself love, created man and woman in his own image and likeness, the couples mutual love becomes an image of the absolute and unfailing love with which God loves mankind.

Because it is the consequence of a commitment to love, the union in marriage is established by free consent where the spouses mutually give and receive one another.  Christ the Lord himself raised marriage between the baptized to the dignity of a sacrament (Mt 19:3-6) and declared it indissoluble.

Retrouvaille

Teams of Our Lady is an international lay movement in the Catholic Church, designed to enrich marriage spirituality and make good marriages better. A team comprises 4 – 7 couples that come together once a month, in the presence of a spiritual counsellor who provides theological knowledge and expertise. The team shares a simple meal, prayer, sharing on the “Endeavours” and a study topic. The Endeavours are at the heart of the spirit of Teams. Everything is held in confidence and all sharing is voluntary. We share and support each other on our marital journey towards God, yet we are not a therapy group.
