Pope Francis on indissolubility of marriage


Good statement today from Pope Francis on marriage:

Promoting vocations and encouraging reception of the Sacraments, the Pope said, are important components of the Church’s work. Pope Francis focused especially on the Sacrament of Matrimony. “The holiness and indissolubility of Christian matrimony, often disintegrating under tremendous pressure from the secular world, must be deepened by clear doctrine and supported by the witness of committed married couples. Christian matrimony is a lifelong covenant of love between one man and one woman; it entails real sacrifices in order to turn away from illusory notions of sexual freedom and in order to foster conjugal fidelity.” He pointed to the teaching of Blessed John Paul II on marriage and family as a “promising and indeed indispensable means of communicating the liberating truth about Christian marriage.”
