MINISTERIO HISPANO – Noviembre 02, 2014
LA SACRAMENTALIDAD DEL MATRIMONIO
VIENE DEL DOMINGO PASADO:
La Carta a los Efesios, habla de la nueva realización del misterio escondido
desde los siglos en Dios; realización definitiva desde el punto de vista de la
historia terrena de la salvación. Habla además de "hacer -al misterio- visible"
de la visibilidad del Invisible.
Esta visibilidad no hace ciertamente que el misterio deje de ser misterio. Esto se refería al matrimonio
constituido al "principio", en el estado de la inocencia originaria, dentro del contexto del sacramento
de la creación. Esto se refiere también a la unión de Cristo con la Iglesia, como "misterio grande" del
sacramento de la redención. La visibilidad del Invisible no significaba -si así se puede decir- una
claridad total del misterio. Como objeto de la fe, permanece velado incluso a través de aquello en que
precisamente se expresa y se realiza. La visibilidad del Invisible pertenece, pues, al orden de los
signos, y el "signo" indica solamente la realidad del misterio, pero no la "desvela".
Así como el "primer Adán" -el hombre, varón y mujer- creado en el estado de la inocencia originaria y
llamado en este estado a la unión conyugal "en este sentido hablamos del sacramento de la
creación", fue signo del misterio eterno, así también el "segundo Adán", Cristo, unido con la Iglesia a
través del sacramento de la redención con un vínculo indisoluble, análogo a la alianza indisoluble de
los esposos, es signo definitivo del mismo misterio eterno.
Al hablar pues de la realización del misterio eterno hablamos también del hecho de que se convierte
en visible con la visibilidad del signo. Y por eso hablamos incluso de la sacramentalidad de toda la
heredad del sacramento de la redención, con referencia a toda la obra de la creación y de la
redención, y mucho más con referencia al matrimonio instituido en el contexto del sacramento de la
creación, como también con referencia a la Iglesia, cual Esposa de Cristo, dotada de una alianza de
tipo conyugal con El. CONTINUAMOS EL SIGUIENTE DOMINGO
