Catholic Marriage, A Domestic Church

"Christian marriage, as a reflection of the union between Christ and His Church, is fully realized in the union between a man and a woman who give themselves to each other in a free, faithful and exclusive love; who belong to each other until death; and are open to the transmission of life, consecrated by the Sacrament, which grants them the grace to become a 'domestic church' and a leaven of new life for society.." 
~ Pope Francis, "The Joy of Love"
