Marriage: Love and Life in the Divine Plan

by USCCB Publishing
$7.95

Since the beginning of the world, marriage and blessing have been inseparable. The blessing of marriage survived unharmed from our break with you through original sin. Jesus not only restored, but elevated the blessing of marriage to a sacrament.

As a sign of Christ's living presence in the world, marriage is special blessing to our communities. This statement recaptures and further explores the blessing of marriage as a public commitment between a man and woman. It emphasizes the unitive and procreative aspects of marriage, the relationship between the two aspects, and the sacramental nature of marriage. There is also a deep and thorough discussion of the contemporary challenges to marriage in today's world and how the Church addresses those challenges.

Preaching is evangelizing, making the Word come alive for the People of God. This task is central to the New Evangelization and the Church's renewal.

The bishops' statement Preaching the Mystery of Faith: The Sunday Homily, is directed toward priests, deacons, and seminary educators who prepare them to preach the Sunday homily in these times of confusion and relativism. The statement gives special attention to the biblical and theological foundations for effective liturgical preaching and considers the proper connection between the Sunday homily and the Church's liturgy and catechesis. Preaching the Mystery of Faith emphasizes the particular pastoral needs of our time that have prompted the call for a renewed evangelization.
