I was invited to offer a presentation to the deacon-candidates for the Diocese of Steubenville on the Church's vision for Marriage.  My presentation (attached for anyone interested) covers the following topics:

What is Marriage
8 qualities that every marriage must posses according to God's design

The Sacramentality of Marriage
The nobility and beauty that Christ bestows on marriage is staggering!

Missing the Mark - Deviations from God's Design
Exploring the moral obstacles that prevent Marriage from being true to God's design

Marriage is a Demanding Call
How married couples reflect the self-giving love of Christ.
