THE SACRAMENT OF MARRIAGE
"So they are no longer two but one flesh.
Therefore what God has joined together,
human beings must not divide" (Mark 10:8-9).
The Sacrament of Marriage (Matrimony) is a blessed occasion as two people publicly come together in front of their families and in front of God to devote their hearts and souls to one another in a relationship which is permanent, lifelong, and open to life. It is truly is a sacred event.
