Rome Quotes

"The Sacrament of Matrimony is not a pious extra added to the marriage contract; it is rather the elevation of a natural marriage contract to the order of grace, in which the husband loves the wife, as Christ loves the Church, and the wife loves the husband as the Church loves Christ.  The husband and wife are not just a symbol of the union of Christ and the Church; they enjoy a real participation in that union.  As Christ lives in the Church and the Church in Christ, so the husband lives in the wife and the wife in the husband, and the two are in one flesh." 

-Archbishop Fulton Sheen
