World Marriage Day

World Marriage Day is Feb. 8.

Next weekend at all the Masses all married couples will be invited to renew their marriage vows and they will be prayed over and blest.

World Marriage Day is a good occasion and opportunity to reaffirm the sanctity of marriage. It is a vocation, a call from God, to a man and woman to unite their hearts and lives in a life-long bond of love and to be open to accepting the invitation of God to bring new life into the world.

Marriage is one of the seven sacraments Jesus has given the church. Let us pray for all married couples to grow in love and unity. Let us also pray for those whose marriages have not endured, that they continue to seek God’s will for them.
