“Whatever you do for your family, your children, your husband, your wife, you do for God. All we do, our prayers, our work, our suffering, is for Jesus.”
- St. Teresa of Calcutta
Marriage and Family
While marriage is a special blessing for Christians because of the grace of Christ, marriage is also a natural blessing and gift for everyone in all times and cultures. As the U.S. Bishop’s wrote in their pastoral letter Marriage: Love and Life in the Divine Plan: “Just as families render an invaluable service to society, society has a reciprocal obligation to protect and support families…. The well-being of society is closely tied to healthy marriage and families.” The Nebraska Catholic Conference advocates for public policy that affirms the Christian view of marriage and human sexuality and supports families and children.
