“ . . . I have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, but you know what? Jesus wants much more than a personal relationship with us - you can have a personal relationship with your mailman.
What does Jesus want? What does He want from every single one of us?
He wants a covenant with us. He wants to wed himself to us. He wants to be much more than just our friend. He wants to be our Bridegroom.
He wants a covenant with us that will never end, that will transcend every personal relationship and go deeper than the deepest love that any human being has ever had for another.
And that is why He wrote it into marriage itself, to be a sign, a Sacrament, of His love for us.”
~ Dr. Brant Pitre
