Marriage one man and one woman for nurturing children: Pope Francis’ first encyclical

Posted by Joseph on 6 July, 2013

In his first encyclical letter, released this morning, Pope Francis has reiterated that marriage is a union of one man and one woman for the procreation and nurturing of children.

This lifelong pledge is possible only in the light of a greater plan for marriage, he said: “Promising love for ever is possible when we perceive a plan bigger than our own ideas and undertakings, a plan which sustains us and enables us to surrender our future entirely to the one we love.”

  1. Democracy is dying, power grabbing is in full sway, morality is dying by reason of installed legislation. Where the noisy, bombastic, PC brigades, HR legions and soon to be anarchists, are heard above the majority of God fearing and moral thinkers
    in this age. eg how many governments legalised same sex marriage, as a result of referenda ? NOT one ! This is DICTATORSHIP !
