In the Gospel of St. Mark, the Lord Jesus teaches that “from the beginning of creation ‘God made them male and female.’” He then declares a great and beautiful truth inscribed in creation: “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two but one flesh” (Mark 10:6–8).
Marriage creates “one body,” a new reality, in the union of a man and a woman by ordering it toward a common life that promotes the good of the couple, the family, and the community as a whole. Marriage creates a unique social union not based on blood relations or common descent (“a man leaves his father and his mother and cleaves to his wife”).
The Apostle Paul says that as man and woman united in the estate of matrimony are two in one flesh, so God and man are united in the one person Christ, and so Christ and Christendom are one body. It is indeed a wonderful sacrament, as Paul says in (Ephesians . 5:25) Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
Throughout the year, the couple’s ministry hosts events to promote the strengthening of one of God’s most powerful relationship bonds. The witness that can be provided by experiencing how a Christian man and woman are supposed to interact can speak volumes more than any conversation.
