SO THEY ARE NO LONGER TWO, BUT ONE FLESH. THEREFORE WHAT GOD HAS JOINED TOGETHER, LET NO ONE SEPARATE - MATTHEW 19:6.
Combining the insights of someone who has counseled married couples with the understanding of a priest who has himself taken a vow before God, this collection of pastoral reflections by John Cardinal O'Connor is not a typical marriage manual, nor a book of strict guidelines and instructions.
Both practical and pastoral, Covenant of Love is, instead, a probing look at marriage that includes real-life anecdotes and more than two dozen chapter reflections covering such themes as self-sacrifice, indissolubility, prayer life, marital relations, channels of grace, the frustration-aggression syndrome, money, divorce and remarriage, being loved for oneself, fidelity, and parenting.
Whether you're married or about-to-be-married, Covenant of Love will encourage you to look at the sacramental and spiritual dimensions of marriage as God intended it to be.
