- Christian marriage is no mere human contract. It is a mystical participation in the sacrificial, self-giving love of Christ for his Church.
- Spouses are for one another and for the children witnesses to the salvation in which the sacrament makes them sharers. No doubt that these conditions must include persistence and patience, humility and strength of mind, filial trust in God and in His grace, and frequent recourse to prayer and to the sacraments of the Eucharist and of Reconciliation.
- “Parents should regard as their proper mission the task of transmitting human life and educating those to whom it has been transmitted. They should realize that they are thereby cooperators with the love of God the Creator, and are, so to speak, the interpreters of that love.” (Gaudium et Spes)
