The Call, the Journey and the Mission
Our response to an invitation from the Bishops of England and Wales to reflect on the gift of marriage and family life in preparation for October's Ordinary General Assembly in Rome.
What Is Marital Spirituality? By Fr Frank O’Sullivan
A draft paper by a deeply committed and hugely experienced priest in the area of marriage and family life. It reflects his particular and personal perspective on a subject where there is growing interest among Christians. Namely, how can/do Christian married couples strive daily to follow the command of Jesus ‘to love God and to love others’, taking as their model the way that Christ loved his bride - the Church, the People of God? Within the paper, some Two in One Flesh (TIOF) group members noted their own observations.
Also listed below is a draft response to Fr Frank's contribution by another member of TIOF. Whilst there are many aspects where he finds common ground within this paper, there are some significant areas of disagreement.
Whilst we wish to make clear that their views are not wholly representative of TIOF, we do believe they may provide sufficient interest to encourage further discussion on the topic of marital spirituality.
