Gift of Marriage - One Minute With Bishop Burbidge
This is Bishop Michael Burbidge of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington. Recently our diocese had the great privilege of celebrating an annual Mass for husbands and wives married for 25 or 50 years or even longer! Faithful married love, what a beautiful gift! Married love is a sign of the way that God loves us. Therefore, whenever we look at a married couple, we should be able to say: “Do you see how they love one another? That is the exact same way that God loves us.” So we pray for all married couples, that their love, like God’s love, will be permanent, faithful and life giving. Wepray that the love they share will grow stronger with the passing of each new day. So, married couples, why not use today to recallthe promises you have made to one another and never forget that at the heart of your vocation is the sacred duty to help each other get to heaven?
