The Sacrament of Marriage

For the month of February, the Family Fully Alive theme is

The Sacrament of Marriage. 

Mediation:  “The foundation of the domestic Church is the sacrament of marriage.  It is therefore important to reflect often on the mystery and calling of the sacrament.  Also, our children may be called to become spouses and parents, so it is important to help them understand the type of love that is necessary in marriage and family life.”

Scripture Reading of the Month:  Psalm 128.  A prayer of the happy home that follows the Lord.

Family Project:  Nuptial Blessings.  Share memories of your wedding day with your family over a meal.  Show how Christ is present in your marriage.


1) Do we think of marriage differently when we remember that Christ is present in the sacrament of marriage?

2) What do we think of St. John Chrysostom’s principle of Christian married love-that spouses and family increase by decreasing?

3) Have we loved each family member by sacrificing for them as Christ has done for us?
