Marriage is ordered to life

Today is the end of the novena to uphold Proposition 8 which upholds the dignity of marriage between a man and a woman in the state of California. No updates yet. I didn’t post articles throughout the novena as i said i would because 1. I just didn’t have time to post them. 2. the one article that I did post was good enough–‘same sex marriage’ does damage to children.

Here is great quote from Pope John Paul II’ s Letter to Families:

¬†Marriage, which undergirds the institution of the family, is constituted by the covenant whereby “a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of their whole life”, and which “of its own very nature is ordered to the well-being of the spouses and to the procreation and upbringing of children”.

Only such a union can be recognized and ratified as a “marriage” in society. Other interpersonal unions which do not fulfill the above conditions cannot be recognized, despite certain growing trends which represent a serious threat to the future of the family and of society itself.
