Pope: Why the ‘dual-unity’ of man and woman is important

ZENIT [Read the Article]

“[it] is based on the foundation of the dignity of every person, created in the image and likeness of God, who ‘created them male and female’ (Genesis 1:27), as much avoiding an indistinct uniformity and flattened-out and impoverished equality as an abysmal and conflictive difference … This dual-unity carries with it, inscribed in bodies and souls, the relation with the other, love for the other, interpersonal communion that shows that ‘the creation of man is also marked by a certain likeness to the divine communion.’ When, therefore, men or women pretend to be autonomous or totally self-sufficient, they risk being closed up in a self-realization … which in fact reduces them to an oppressive solitude.”

...which is exactly WHY I get so enraged when six-sacrament clergy/laity act/react as-if the Sacramental Union of two persons (OF OPPOSITE SEX) can be blithely IGNORED and UNDONE ONCE UNITED IN MATRIMONY!

If the SACRED UNION of man/woman in MARRIAGE parallels aspects of the DIVINE TRINITY:


Yet, almost to the person, societally (most) people scoff-indifferently when they learn of couples who intend to BREAK THEIR UNITY IN MARRIAGE! [Clergy should understand this BEST!]

If people widely-understood, believed, and comprehended the consequences of Pope Benedict’s words (above), they’d FREAK at the realization that (1 Cor. 7: 10-11) divorce/separation imposes a stark (inhuman) post-Marital choice of either (1) adultery or (2) oppressive solitude:

“...they risk being closed up in a self-realization ...which in fact reduces them to an oppressive solitude.”

Personally, I wouldn’t want to wish either of those two choices on my enemies, even-less on those I know, love, and/or respect!

[...but then that’s just “me”.]

” Marriage is an Institution. ” If all men realize and listen to the divine interventions in marriage , there would be no broken homes and consequent unhappiness / ” oppressive solitude ” in this imperfect world of ours.
” What God has joined together, let no man put asunder. ” If God is in our homes, who would go astray ?
God bless those who are contemplating / anticipating to enter into the Sacrament of Matrimony. May God grant them love and joy, courage, as they enter into new life together .
