(LifeSiteNews) — The primary topic of this week’s episode of The Bishop Strickland Show is marriage. Bishop Joseph Strickland kicked off the show by explaining how a strong marriage is attainable for Catholic couples.
“You need a strongly well-catechized man and a well-catechized woman. You need true disciples entering into the beautiful sacrament of marriage,” he said. “And so really, that’s what we’re trying to focus on is helping the man be a better disciple and the woman to be a better disciple.”
In a practical sense, that might mean praying with your spouse every day, because couples who pray together stay together.
“It’s really to bring people together where both the man and the woman are committed to Christ and to each other that it doesn’t make life easy or simple, but it makes it doable to flourish in the Lord Jesus Christ in your marriage. And it becomes beautiful,” Strickland added.
His Excellency then explained the concept of Jesus Christ as Word and Sacrament — that is, Christ’s presence on every page of Sacred Scripture and the presence of His body and blood in the Eucharist.
“It’s such a shame that anyone walks away from the Catholic faith, because it’s really the only one that offers you the full Jesus Christ,” he said. “Word and Sacrament, in word and sign. He is with us in consecrated bread and wine. He is with us in the sacred scriptures. He is with us in different ways, but bringing it all together.”
