We now complete the Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World’s chapter on marriage and family in the modern world.
Article 52 brings things to a close with a look at the obligations of various peoples to safeguard and protect marriage and the family: public authority, Christians, scientists, priests, family associations, and — of course — the spouses themselves. And it ends with a final ties in of the marriage vocation to Christ and the Paschal Mystery.
