Sunday Sermon, November 15th -- Advice for a Happy Marriage (Father Ryan Erlenbush, Corpus Christi parish)

 The first reading from Proverbs speaks of the good wife  ---  and we take this opportunity to reflect upon what will make for a happy and holy marriage.

St Paul tells us, "Wife, obey your husband. Husband, love your wife." This is the key to a happy marriage: For the woman to obey her husband in everything, to respect him as head, and to inspire him through praise; for the man to love his wife selflessly, to lay down his life for her, and to show her appreciation especially through compliments.

We recommend an excellent book on marriage: The Catholic Marriage Manual, by Fr George Kelly.
