A great mystery


Great mystery,Christ and the church.Husband and wife

Great mystery:

The bone of my bones

also the flesh of my flesh.

She shall be called a woman.

because she came out of man.


Therefore, man to leave his parents.

And Join to his wife.

Man to leave the nest and cleave to wife

because he has to start leading his own family.

Hence become one flesh.

As a result: Bone to bone, flesh to flesh. His bride, His body


Husband to love wife,

As Christ loved the Church

And gave Himself for her,

To purify her,

By the word.

In the same fashion, husband to loving his wife,

as his own body,

for Christ loves His own body:

the church

he watches over her

purifies her by His word

Protects her from the wiles of the enemy

and loves her passionately.


Wife to respect, and honor her own husband.

As the Church submits to Christ,

Who is her head, Lord and Savior.

hence the husband is head of the wife

Wife is privileged to have the head:

She does not have to lead, because the Lord has provided the leader.

the lead and love of a husband.

Consequently, the husband is

to make sure he leads in word and action

Above all in love

That’s a great mystery.
