9781593252809: The Marriage God Wants for You: Why the Sacrament Makes All the DIfference

Most people would agree that marriage today is in crisis. What is usually overlooked even by those married in the Church is that God intended marriage to be a sacrament. The Lord wants couples to rely on his promise to be present in their day-to-day lives, and he wants to give them the grace to live out a covenantal love that mirrors the love of the Trinity.
Rather than simply a defense of marriage, this book presents the good news about sacramental marriage. Cardinal Donald Wuerl uses his years of pastoral experience and his gift of teaching to give hope and courage to both engaged couples and those married for many years and to anyone thinking about the meaning or vocation of marriage.

About the Author:

His Eminence Cardinal Donald Wuerl is the Archbishop of Washington and was elevated to the College of Cardinals in 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI. Known for his efforts on behalf of Catholic education, he has served as a chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on Doctrine and a member of the USCCB Committee on Evangelization. He was also the Relator General for the Vatican Synod of Bishops on the New Evangelization for the Transmission of the Christian Faith. He is the author of numerous articles and books, including Faith That Transforms Us: Reflections on the Creed and The Light Is On for You: The Life-Changing Power of Confession, both published by The Word Among Us Press.

Review:

We live in a society that has emptied marriage of its glory and stolen happiness away from families. Cardinal Wuerl restores that glory for young couples today. This book is an investment that will pay off in a happier future. Highly recommended! --Scott Hahn, professor of theology, Franciscan University of Steubenville, and bestselling author

At a time when the very nature of marriage is in question, Cardinal Wuerl s book proves particularly useful and illuminating. With his customary lucidity and depth, he brings out the essential features of marriage as the Catholic Church understands it: fidelity, permanence, openness to life, and sacramentality. The book also includes some wonderful, funny, and gritty reflections from married couples themselves. I would warmly recommend this book to anyone curious to know why the Catholic Church takes marriage with such seriousness and treats it with such reverence. --Fr. Robert Barron, rector, Mundelein Seminary, and founder of Word on Fire Ministries
