First day of Humanum conference studies the beauty of marriage between man and woman

2014-11-18

The beauty of marriage between man and woman and its importance transcends divisions and beliefs.

That's what several participants of the Humanum conference have seen on its first day. 

SR. PRUDENCE ALLEN
Religious Sisters of Mercy (USA)
"There are a few people, many people in this interfaith dynamic at the conference which is incredible where you can see the witness to marriage and the beauty and power of marriage in all the different religious traditions. How it's good, it's true, it's unifying, it's one, it's beautiful.”

In his address, Cardinal Müller explained that the complimentarity of man and woman is important both in human relationships and in the relationship with God. 

CARD. GERHARD MÜLLER
Prefect, Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith
"Their union reveals how each one are a mutual help to walk towards the Creator, God, who is beginning and end of the world and of mankind.”

Lord Jonathan Sacks, the former Chief Rabbi of the United Kingdom, was there as the Jewish representative. He stressed that marriage between man and woman should be supported by all institutions because it is not only a religious issue. It is a union that strengthens society.

JONATHAN SACKS
Former Chief Rabbi (England)
"And those children who, through no fault of their own, have grown up through fractured families will be disadvantaged in every way. And I think it is a crying scandal and needs somebody to stand up for the children who are the victims of this strange desertion of marriage. What I wanted to point out in my speech is that marriage is not simply a religious institution. Though it is the religious communities who seem to have stayed faithful to it rather more than secular society as a whole.”

The goal of the conference, which is being held at the Vatican, is to highlight that marriage between man and woman is tied to the fate of humanity and that it is crucial to protect for future generations.
