Languages of publication
From the very beginning, the Church took upon herself the care of those to be married. Therefore, She placed upon Her spiritual pastors the obligation to prepare the faithful for the Sacrament of Matrimony. Aware of the fact that marriage is such an important occurrence in the lives of the engaged couple, and in the lives of the entire community of the faithful, the Church felt obligated to provide pastoral aid for young people in preparation for marriage. It is no wonder that the Codex Iuris Canonici of 1917 obligates spiritual guides to carefully and sensibly teach the faithful about the sacrament of matrimony and its hindrances. This topic also found its reflection in the resolutions of the First Synod of the Diocese of Tarnow. The resolutions put to rest the lawful disposition of the topic of a premarital exam which confirms that one is free to marry, and to announce the banns in order to remove any obstacles to marriage. Presented in such a way - using precautionary measures - the pastor diligently uproots these obstacles, allowing him to assist in the completion of the marriage in a weighty and agreeable manner.
