And this love unites the two people who marry. It unites them in the way Jesus said, “as one body,” meaning a perfect, personal union.This is the trend we wish to trace. We have to go against the current that has developed over the last centuries, and has destroyed this sentiment which has ennobled man, divinising him. And it has led and dragged him to a beastly status, a super-beastly, satanic level. That means, we want to recreate marriage, the sacrament.
(Igino Giordani, unedited speech to families, October 1979)
