The Sacrament of Marriage, by which a man and woman become “one body,” mirrors the union that exists between Christ and the Church. The love of a man and a woman as husband and wife is also a powerful sign of Christ’s love for the Church. Through the sacrament, Christ becomes a companion for the couple, offering them His grace. The Lord’s grace helps deepen their love and strengthen their union as they live out their vocation to marriage.
