Day #133: Gaudium Et Spes 49

We continue our look at marriage and family in the Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World.

Today’s reading is all about the importance of the conjugal aspect of marriage and the mutual self-giving of the spouses.  True love necessarily entails self-sacrifice.

Here are the footnotes:

10. Cf. Gen. 2:22-24, Prov. 5:15-20; 31:10-31; Tob. 8:4-8; Cant. 1:2-3; 1:16; 4:165:1; 7:8-14; 1 Cor. 7:3-6; Eph 5:25-33.

11. Cf. Pius XI, encyclical letter Casti Connubii: AAS 22 (1930), p. 547 and 548; Denz.-Schoen. 3707.
