Love Letters to the Church 5 – Ephesians Chapter 5: Love and Marriage by Fr Robbie Low

Love Letters to the Church artwork for podcastBeginning with an outline of the practical behaviour expected from Christians, Fr Robbie moves on to look at St Paul’s teaching on marriage. His words are familiar: ‘Give way to one another in obedience to Christ… husbands love your wives as Christ loved the Church and sacrificed himself for her… wives submit to your husbands…children, obey your parents…’  However, beyond the marriage bond between husband and wife is the imagery of St John in the Book of the Apocalypse of the Church as the Bride of Christ prepared for the Marriage Feast of the Lamb.
