Pope presses importance of faith in the strength of marriage during speech to Roman Rota

BENEDICT XVI ;

“The current crisis of faith that affects various areas of the world, bearing with it a crisis of conjugal society, with all the suffering and discomfort that this bring upon the children.” ;

The Pope explained that the lack of faith does not prevent a marriage from becoming valid, because the Church only requires that the union between husband and wife meets the traits of a “natural marriage.” Those traits are that it lasts for a lifetime, that it be open to life, and that they the good in each other. ;

However, he also talked about the risks of having those traits of natural marriage severed by what he described as the moral and religious relativism in modern society. ;
