Father Mike #3

In marriage there are expectations. Marriages are not always perfect.  In sacramental marriage there are three questions asked by the priest are, “are you here by your own free will and willing to give yourself. Do you intend to be faithful till death? Are you open to children and raising your children in the Church?“ These questions are hard because of expectations. Guided by freedom and fear. Do not want fear in this choice. Unknown to known lose fear. Can not let fear control. Nervousness to be a parent. The freedom I’m getting married to the person I love now I have the freedom to live with them. Not adding another human to a broken world is not a valid reason to not have children. Do not let fear control. “ You can not take a box of rocks and make life.” Mr. Sader. “Children are the point of marriage. Not the extra.”
