When we married we became a flesh and blood sacrament. Today, Jesus says “I am the bread of life”. We are ‘food and drink’ for each other. Let’s continue to nourish one another in our marriages, in all those little ways, with tender words and loving actions and become more a ‘sign’ of God’s love for the world.
“The personal encounter with Christ through reading the Word of God together at home constitutes an inspired source of daily living for couples.”
The Synod Fathers
