Marriage For the Married and the Not Yet Married


This CD compiles two talks given by Archbishop Fulton Sheen about marriage. Archbishop Sheen shares his great wisdom about the differences between the expectations of love and marriage from the perspectives of a man and a woman. He also discusses the tensions in the human heart, why they arise, and how they can affect marriage. He reminds all who listen of the famous prayer of St. Augustine: "Our hearts were made for Thee, O Lord; and they are restless until they rest in Thee." Archbishop Sheen also discusses the immense importance of marriage, especially as it is a symbol of the marriage between Christ and His Church. This is why marriage is held in such a high regard by the Church, why marriage is permanent and divorce is not allowed, and why marriage is between one man and one woman.
