by Roderick MacEachen, D.D., Impr., 1947.
Preface by His Eminence Cardinal Gibbons:
”This little volume has a great mission: it goes forth to defend the holiness of the marriage state and the dignity of parenthood; to define the duties and mutual relations of man and wife; to warn our people against the abuses that too often surround marriage in modern society. It is concise enough for the busiest of men, erudite enough for the most scholarly, and simple enough for the humblest of our people. That it may teach many to love and respect the great Sacrament of Matrimony is our ardent wish.” Eleven chapters to include: The Sacrament of Matrimony, The Jurisdiction of the Church over Marriage, Mixed Marriage, Conjugal Relations and 7 others. Also included is Marriage Ceremony and Nuptial Blessing.
