The Transfiguration, Raphael, c. 1520
Did you know that you and your spouse are a living icon, called to radiate the love of God?
It’s true. Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI in his 2005 encyclical Deus Caritas Est (God is Love) said that “marriage based on exclusive and definitive love becomes the icon of the relationship between God and his people and vice versa. God’s way of loving becomes the measure of human love” (11).
