Both married and single people will find essential wisdom within, as you explore Scripture, the teachings of the Church, and the writings of Catherine Doherty on the institution of marriage.
Love… love… love… never counting the cost.
This new addition to the Little Mandate Book series, Marriage, offers fresh insight into the grace-filled Sacrament of Marriage. Both married and single people will find essential wisdom within, as Rosalie McPhee explores explores Scripture, the teachings of the Church, and the writings of Catherine Doherty on the institution of marriage, as well as offering practical and down-to-earth guidance for couples seeking to deepen their commitment to each other. She offers her own candid experiences of the joys and struggles of Christian Marriage.
“The Sacrament of Marriage is a fountain of grace which, together with the grace of your Baptism and Confirma-tion, and the strength which comes from the Eucharist, will enable you, day by day, to accept sacrifices for each other’s sake, to remain faithful in the face of every difficulty, trial and temptation, and in all ways to fulfill the demands of your calling as Christian married people.” — Pope John Paul II
Today, as secularism conspires to crumble this noble edifice, we need to stand firm on this foundation that God himself created and ordained when he fashioned the first man and woman.
A Little Mandate Book
The timeless wisdom of the Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, and Catherine Doherty, foundress of Madonna House, is featured prominently in this new series of books. The theme of Catherine’s Little Mandate—a beautiful distillation of the Gospel of Jesus—weaves throughout and serves as an important foundation. Each book also gives an abundance of brief and profound quotations from Holy Scripture, and quotations from some of the great Catholic saints. These books are small enough to carry anywhere—and their wisdom is arranged in bite-size segments that you can read on the run, whenever you can spare time.
