Product Description

The animating principle of Bridegroom and Bride was expressed by renowned preacher Msgr. Ronald Knox, who stated, "Every marriage is an event in human history." The fundamental structure of "the tapestry that Divine Providence weaves out of our lives" is "love of man for woman and love of woman for man."

Msgr. Knox delivered an abundance of wedding homilies, whether at the weddings of earls or those of numerous former students for whom he had served as chaplain. The result is a compilation of twenty-four wedding sermons suitable for engaged and married couples, as well as anyone seeking genuine human affection. Each chapter is "the kind of thing for which five minutes are too short and ten minutes are too long."

Msgr. Knox emphasises the kindness and beauty of human love with his customary wit, intelligence, and confidence. These sacred pages enlighten the perfecting power of the Sacrament of Marriage and the grace of the covenant in order to sanctify and strengthen the bride and groom and their family for eternity.

The awe-inspiring meditations delve thoroughly into frequently overlooked everyday truths. As Msgr. Knox considers the terms of the wedding vows and the wedding ceremony, you'll be delighted to discover:

  • Two components of a successful marriage (Can you predict what they are?)
  • Three ways in which Christmas provides a model for spouses
  • How the affection between a spouse and wife brightens the lives of others
  • Why the fiat in marriage is comparable to Mary's affirmation at the Annunciation
  • Three combatant virtues learnt in the academy of love

Above all, you will see how "nature is supernaturalized" in marriage and "becomes the handmaid of grace," enabling the husband and wife to develop in virtue. Msgr. Knox explains that through the Sacrament of Matrimony, the couple is immersed in the current of divine love and worships God through their ordinary duties and lives of sacrifice. Through the intercession of the Holy Family, the husband and wife will experience a love whose fulfilment is found in heaven.

"A phenomenal gift for an engaged Catholic couple," wrote one reviewer. "Beautifully written, easily accessible, and profoundly theological. As spiritual preparation for your wedding day, you could easily read one sermon per night.
