The fundamental message of Marriage Week is that marriage is worth investing in, because all the research shows that stable families make for a happier society. It’s also really important to keep working on a marriage. Couples who do so are more likely to stay together.
All God’s people are called to live a life of holiness through their vocation. Spouses, through the vocation to marriage, should follow their own path to holiness, which is sustained by the grace of the Sacrament.
Love is the central and the most fundamental aspect of the Sacrament of Marriage. St John Paul II stated that “Love is the fundamental and innate vocation of every human being” (Familiaris Consortio 1981).
Each Marriage Week has a theme. Read more about the theme for 2023 – Marriage… one flesh, given and received.
We are very fortunate, as Catholics, to be able to call on the saints to inspire us in all our joys and celebrations - not to mention our trials and tribulations. Here we also have links to organisations that promote Catholic marriage.
