Blackstone Films has produced an incredibly accurate and insightful video examining the way Catholics think about and live out the vocation of marriage.

Warning – the content will be personally challenging and thought-provoking.

“By reason of their state in life and of their order, [Christian spouses] have their own special gifts in the People of God.”147 This grace proper to the sacrament of Matrimony is intended to perfect the couple’s love and to strengthen their indissoluble unity. By this grace they “help one another to attain holiness in their married life and in welcoming and educating their children.” – Catechism of the Catholic Church 1614

Watch this short video with your apostolate to spark conversations that can lead to a better understanding of how Catholics can be witnesses of Christ’s love through marriage. This is the starting place we need in order to begin addressing the other issues that are threatening to destroy God’s design and plan for marriage and family.
