The sacrament of Christian marriage

According to the Code of Canon Law, marriage is "the pact with which man and woman establish among themselves the community of all life, by its nature ordered to the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of the offspring", which "is been elevated by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament ".

Marriage, not infrequently, is presented from two points of view: on the one hand, it is considered a natural, profane institution; on the other, the conjugal bond of Christians conceived as a reality instituted by Christ.
The propensión to estabilizar a separación entre el sacro y el profano is the result of secularism.

There is no natural, civil profane marriage and a sacred, sacramental, canonical marriage. There is only one marriage, which from the beginning holds a supernatural dimensión, a very close relationship with the divine plan, creator and redeemer.

Marriage is from the beginning a sign of the mystery manifested in creation, the mystery of God's eternal love for man, a mystery that is expressed and realized in time through the relationship of Christ with the Church.

The sacrament of marriage is no more than the original marriage or sacrament of the creation, elevated to the condition of sacrament of the New Covenant, not in virtue of the sacred rite or ceremony, but due to the fact that the spouses, through el baptism, are inserted in indestructible way in the spousal covenant of Christ and the Church.

The sacrament is not something added or concomitant with ordinary reality: it is the same ordinary reality elevated by Christ.

The rotal jurisprudence has accepted this tradition, expressing it to the maximum who wants the contract, wants the sacrament. The affirmation that among the baptized there can not exist a valid matrimonial contract, which is not for this sacrament itself, is not only a juridical requisite, but a theological declaration of the same reality that in some way conditions the baptized subject: when one wants a matrimonial marriage, the sacrament is received.

Para la historia of the sacramental sign, the iglesia holds a tradicional destiny for the ministry of sacrament, the intention of the tarifa para la iglesia. When they are baptized, they are united in marriage, their consensus, if it is authentic, constitutes the conjugal donation made by two Christians, who by divine will visibly expresses the mystery of the spousal union of Christ and the Church.

El contenido de la canción es the sacrament of marriage, es decir, el fanático no es cristiano en el sacramento del cuento: donar la cantidad necesaria para el marriage. Define the content of the notificación mínima necesaria para el cost of the sacramental segregación, and the cost of the fundamental criterion of admission to the celebration of marriage between baptized through the concept of the right intention. The right intention implies accepting the divine plan for marriage, which is a sacred reality from the moment of creation.

Thus, the mere fact of disregarding or doing without the transcendent dimension of marriage does not in itself affect the right intention to contract it. In fact, not infrequently, pastors find that the request for the celebration of sacramental marriage is made for family or social reasons; all this does not justify a prior refusal of such requests.

In order not to accept the divine plan for marriage by making the right intention disappear, there must be an active attitude of the nubendi, of rejection of what the Church celebrates in marriage, in order to reject the Christian marriage itself (one can think of the recent Cassation ruling civil law relating to the recognition of the nullity of the marriage concordant in the case of atheism). It is a turn to an explicit and formal rejection of what the Church, when it celebrates the marriage of the baptized: that is, the sacramental marriage itself, and not only its sacrament. Anyone who wants to contract a true marriage receives the sacrament.
