L'ÉGLISE COPTE ORTHODOXE DE LA VIERGE MARIE
Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24)
“ …they no longer seem like something earthly, but rather like the image of God Himself ”. (St. John Chrysostom)
Saint Paul expressed the sanctity of marriage, saying, “This is a great mystery” (Ephesians 5:32) and, “Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled” (Hebrews 13:4)
Statistics in North America show that the rate of divorce is increasing and that the idea of living without marriage is wide spread among youth. Some fear the commitment of marriage, some are discouraged by the unhealthy examples they see around them, and some were just not educated in what marriage is and what love really means.
