Vatican City, Oct 31, 2018 / 03:48 am
Faithful married love, in which a husband loves his wife like Christ loves the Church, is “revolutionary,” Pope Francis said Wednesday.
The pope focused his remarks at the general audience on spousal fidelity in every vocation.
“A call to love … manifests itself in fidelity,” Pope Francis said Oct. 31 in St. Peter’s Square.
“This letter of St. Paul is revolutionary to say a husband should love like Christ loves the Church,” the pope continued, in a departure from his prepared remarks. “It's a revolution. Always on the way of love.”
Pope Francis’ comments came as a part of a weekly catechesis on the Ten Commandments. This Wednesday, the pope reflected on the Sixth Commandment, “Do not commit adultery.”
