Amoris Laetitia 205: Preparing for Marriage

amoris laetitia meme“Preparing engaged couples for marriage” will concern us in this section through paragraph #216. Pope Francis credits the synod bishops with three aims of pre-marriage formation.

205. The Synod Fathers stated in a number of ways that we need to help young people discover the dignity and beauty of marriage.(Cf. Relatio Synodi 2014, 26) They should be helped to perceive the attraction of a complete union that

  • elevates and perfects the social dimension of existence,
  • gives sexuality its deepest meaning, and
  • benefits children by offering them the best context for their growth and development.
