PODCAST | Marriage: A Christian Vocation

[ Transcript ]

Through June 2022, in union with the whole Church, the St. Josemaria Institute podcasts, reflections and programs will be celebrating the topic of the Joy of the Family. This month, we will begin with a three-part series from Msgr. Fred Dolan offering a deeper reflection on the sacrament of marriage as a Christian vocation.

Msgr. Dolan begins this series by sharing considerations from Pope Francis’ recent Letter to Married Couples for the “Amoris Laetitia Family” Year. Drawing upon the example of Mary and Joseph, we are given an example of how to respond to unexpected circumstances with faith and confidence in God’s loving providence.

Pope Francis reminds us: “Marriage, as a vocation, calls you to steer a tiny boat across a sometimes stormy sea. Let us never forget, though, that by virtue of the sacrament of matrimony, Jesus is present in that boat; he is concerned for you and he remains at your side amid the tempest.”
