|Be subject to one another in the fear of Christ.
|Wives should be submissive to their husbands, as to the Lord.
|For the husband is the head of the wife, just as Christ is the head of the Church. He is the Savior of his body.
|Therefore, just as the Church is subject to Christ, so also should wives be subject to their husbands in all things.
|Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the Church and handed himself over for her,
|so that he might sanctify her, washing her clean by water and the Word of life,
|so that he might offer her to himself as a glorious Church, not having any spot or wrinkle or any such thing, so that she would be holy and immaculate.
|So, too, husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
|For no man has ever hated his own flesh, but instead he nourishes and cherishes it, as Christ also does to the Church.
|For we are a part of his body, of his flesh and of his bones.
|“For this reason, a man shall leave behind his father and mother, and he shall cling to his wife; and the two shall be as one flesh.”
|This is a great Sacrament. And I am speaking in Christ and in the Church.
