THE FAMILY IS THE CHURCH IN THE HOME

The bride and groom are consecrated, and as a married couple living their vocation they enrich the whole community. They build up the Church with their love as husband and wife. In procreating and rearing children they have the dignity of participating in God’s creative work. They live out their marriage in the concrete demands of everyday life.
