Three to Get Married9780933932876
By Fulton J. Sheen
It takes three to make Love in Heaven—
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
It takes three for Heaven to make love to earth—
God, Man, and Mary, through whom God became Man.
It takes three to make love in the Holy Family—
Mary, and Joseph, and the consummation of their love, Jesus.
It takes three to make love in hearts—
The Lover, the Beloved, and Love.
One of the greatest and best-loved spokesmen for the Faith here sets out the Church's beautiful understanding of marriage in his trademark clear and entertaining style.
Frankly and charitably, Sheen presents the causes of and solutions to common marital crises and tells touching real-life stories of people whose lives were transformed through marriage. He emphasizes that our Blessed Lord is at the center of every successful and loving marriage.
This is a perfect gift for engaged couples, or for married people as a fruitful occasion for self-examination.
To that Woman who taught the sublime mystery of Love,
this book is dedicated.
That nations, hearts, and homes may learn
that love does not so much mean to give oneself to another
as for both lovers to give themselves
to that Passionless Passion,
Which is God.
Fulton John Sheen was an American bishop of the Catholic Church known for his preaching and especially his work on television and radio. Many people still remember his show "Life is Worth Living" which aired on national TV and was widely popular at the time.
