The Duties of the Sacrament of Marriage

Sacrament of Matrimony
From Michael's Journal.

"There has never been so much confusion today as regards morals, marriage, and the family. Important truths are totally ignored, which brings about the downfall of society: Parliaments are talking about recognizing “same-sex” unions; abortion has become acceptable; sex before marriage is considered to be normal and natural, etc. People are so ignorant about the teachings of the Church that there are even many people who claim to be good Christians, and still think that there is nothing wrong with the acts mentioned above. Here are excerpts from the Catechism of the Catholic Church on the sacrament of Matrimony and the Sixth Commandment of God, which reminds us of eternal truths that no Catholic should ignore, if one wants society to have any future."
The article is broken up in the following categories:

Marriage in God's plan

The grace of the sacrament

The indissolubility of marriage


The importance of the family

The fecundity of marriage

The gift of a child

Offenses against the dignity of marriage
