Msgr. Pope writes (my boldness):
"First, its title “In sickness…” is a reminder of one of the aspects of the marital vow, namely, that the spouses will remain true and faithful to each other “in sickness and in health.” The video shows the power of faithful and abiding love to bring healing, consolation, and peace in some of life’s darkest hours. The opening darkness and delirium of the sick man gives way quickly when his wife embraces him in love. The confident conclusion of the medical doctor (who in the dream is not able to stave off the attack) is based firmly on the fact that the man is in the care and embrace of his loving wife. All is well. Love conquers even death."
Intended as such or not by its creators, this defense of the marital vows is from an award-winning 2011 cartoon short. Read the Monsignor's full post and watch the video “In Sickness and in health,” as seen in a powerful cartoon.
