Pope Benedict XVI offered this prayer, that God would convince the world of the beauty of marriage.

Many young people today are reluctant to get married, as they have seen the trials and tribulations of their own parents. Yet, it’s important that marriage be upheld as something beautiful and worth pursuing.

Here is a prayer from Pope Benedict XVI, reflecting on the life of St. Bridget of Sweden, asking God to show the world the beauty of marriage.

May the Lord’s Spirit still inspire holiness in Christian spouses today,
to show the world the beauty of marriage lived in accordance with the Gospel values:
love, tenderness, reciprocal help, fruitfulness in begetting and in raising children,
openness and solidarity to the world and participation in the life of the Church.
