Thoughts on Marriage
Marriage is more than human.
It is a "microbasileia," a minature kingdom,
which is the little house of the Lord.
Clement of Alexandria
A harmonious marriage alliance is at once
a holy love, an honorable love, and a
peace with God. God with His own lips
consecrated the course of this alliance, and
with His own hand he established the
coupling of human persons. He made two
abide in one flesh, so that He might
confer a love indivisible.
Paulinus of Nola
Marriage is the sacrament of love.
As the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
So your God will rejoice over you!
Let us rejoice and be glad and give HIm glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
and His bride has made herself ready.
