Disc 3 of Symbolon Part 2 includes Episodes 15 and 16. Episode 15: Matrimony And Holy Orders: The Sacraments of Service and Communion. This session will look at the Sacrament of Marriage and how the grace we receive through the sacrament enables us to live out that relationship as God intended. We will also look at another sacramental service - the Sacrament of Holy Orders. Video Part I: Matrimony will examine marriage as a sacrament; why the grace of the sacrament is essential to the couple, Christ's love as a model for marriage; annulments, and the other sacrament of service - Holy Orders. (12 minutes). Video Part II: The Sacraments of Service & Communion looks at the Sacrament of Matrimony and what it means in the Catholic Church, as well as the other Sacraments of Service - Holy Orders. (29 minutes). Also included in Disc 3 is Episode 16: A Catholic Moral Vision: Virtue, Grace & The Path To Happiness This session shows how morality is simply following our Maker's plan for our lives and in doing so, we become authentically whole and holy. Video Part I: A Catholic Moral Vision discusses how true happiness is found only in God and in following God's moral law. God's grace helps us to overcome our bad habits and to grow in virtue and live a life worthy of a child of God. Sin is contrary to God's moral law. To receive God's mercy we must acknowledge our sin, repent, and ask God for his forgiveness. We do this primarily through the sacrament of reconciliation. (15 minutes) Video Part II: Virtue & The Path To Happiness looks at how morality is really about happiness and why we need virtue in order to become truly free. (30 minutes).
