How is Marriage Different?

Fr. Brendan Pelphrey speaks with Fr. Chris about marriage this week. How does it differ from a partnership or simply a love between two people? What is the Church’s view on marriages outside the Church, both historically and in the modern era? What is the primary purpose of marriage according to our Orthodox understanding, and how should that purpose define our daily lives? Hear the answers to these questions and more! And be sure to stay tuned to the end of the program, where you’ll hear Mark Gruin from IOCC talk about their relief efforts since the Balkan flooding.
