Who Needs Marriage?
The world asks this question. The life-long union of one man and one woman is under attack. Many want to redefine marriage. Some think that living together and homosexuality are the “in” thing. Others think that children of same sex parents do better than having a mom and a dad. Some see children as a burden. “Set me free in my sexuality,” they say. We are seeing right before our eyes the breakdown of marriage and family and in turn of our society. This distorts the view of Christ and the Church.
God loves marriage and children. He is pleased when a man and a woman pledge their love and faithfulness to each other. May we be vigilant against the devil and proactive in teaching our children about God’s will for marriage and family.
