...yeah, you know the one. Eph 5.

Long time Friend of the Show and frequent submissions contributor, Dave S., writes in with the following:

Here is a link to an excellent commentary on Ephesians 5:21-33 by Fr. John Riccardo as part of his Theology Of The Body series. With Valentine's day coming up, it seems like a perfect opportunity to look at what scripture is telling us about Christian marriage.

Just in case you don't know "that passage" from Ephesians, here it is:

21Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ.
22Wives, be subject to your husbands, as to the Lord.
23For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior.
24As the church is subject to Christ, so let wives also be subject in everything to their husbands.
25Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,
26that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,
27that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.
28Even so husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
29For no man ever hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, as Christ does the church,
30because we are members of his body.
31"For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh."
32This mystery is a profound one, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church;
33however, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
