Under the subheading of Passionate Love (142-162) we look at the last topic of this sub-section, treating marriage and virginity. First, the synod bishops express admiration for clergy, religious, and single people who have set aside marriage as a personal vocation. Many of these people offer great service to their families, to the Church, and in the world:
158. “Many people who are unmarried are not only devoted to their own family but often render great service in their group of friends, in the Church community and in their professional lives. Sometimes their presence and contributions are overlooked, causing in them a sense of isolation. Many put their talents at the service of the Christian community through charity and volunteer work. Others remain unmarried because they consecrate their lives to the love of Christ and neighbour. Their dedication greatly enriches the family, the Church and society”.(Relatio Finalis 2015, 22)
