Marriage Preparation

"In our own time, in a world often alien and even hostile to faith, believing families are of primary
importance as centers of living, radiant faith. For this reason the Second Vatican Council
(Lumen Gentium, 11), using an ancient expression, calls the family the Ecclesia domestica."
