“And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.” (MT 16: 18)
This was for Peter, for the past, and is for now and forever. Our Church is protected, and we are protected. Our Church gives us the best knowledge about marriage, about how to protect our relationship, and how to grow together, because marriage is not our idea. “Marriage is not, then, the effect of chance or the product of evolution of unconscious natural forces; it is the wise institution of the Creator to realize in mankind His design of love.” (HV 8) The Church has received the gift of understanding God’s plans, and possesses the gift of explaining God’s plans to us.
“You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church; the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.” (Gospel Acclamation)
