Marriage: Unique for a Reason is an initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Marriage: Unique for a Reason offers resources to assist with the education and catechesis of Catholics on why marriage is unique and why it should be promoted and protected as the union of one man and one woman. Each of the videos in this initiative, with its companion viewer’s guide and resource booklet, is intended as a catechetical and educational aid to be used as a resource by a priest, deacon, catechist, or teacher. The videos provide a creative and artistic introductory step of catechesis. The video, viewer’s guide, and resource booklet form an integrated whole, and as such, complete the proper context of the materials.
While the materials are primarily intended for a Catholic audience, it is hoped that Marriage: Unique for a Reason can be of assistance to all people of good will who seek to understand the truth and beauty of marriage. The truth about marriage is accessible to all people. It’s a truth grounded in the nature of the human person. Because that is so, promoting and protecting marriage witnesses to the dignity of every person and serves the common good.
DVDs and accompanying viewer’s guides and resource booklets are available for purchase at the USCCB Publishing website (search for “Made for Each Other” or “Made for Life” by Title).
