Forms of the Christian State of Life
Explain why the state of life of married disciples is the ordinary Christian state of life.
The state of life of married disciples is the ordinary Christian state of life because Christ, as expressed in the theology of the body, restored marriage and raised it to symbolize the nature of the relationship between Christ and His Church (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1601). Precisely, married disciples live a life that is rooted in the sacrament of Christian marriage, which calls for the fundamental aspects of discipleship including holiness and spiritual maturity. In this regard, Christian marriage signifies the bond that exists between the Church and Christ (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1613). Moreover, the Church is obligated to witness to the world and to transform the world through the lives of the laity. Since the lay state of life of a Christian is the fundamental and primary way of exercising discipleship, married disciples are fundamentally empowered to exercise their Christianity and to reach out to the world because their lives are spiritually rooted in the marriage sacrament (Study Notes).
