Vatican II speaks to Christian Marriage
Vatican II dramatically changed the way the Roman Catholic Church regarded both the institution (Sacrament) of marriage and the role of men and woman in such. No longer is marriage seen as administered by the priest to the couple but, rather, as a ministry the two prospective spouses mediate to each other. There is also a unique wisdom here (not often found in modern evangelicalism) in Catholicism’s understanding of marriage as, “The church in miniature.” The article further covers a new understanding of how sexual love in a Christian marriage can mediate the experience of God. Very well worth the read.
