||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.
