Welcome to

    Marriage Matters

Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

(1 Samuel 3:3-10, 19 1 Corinthians 6:13-15, 17-20 John 1:35-42)

Welcomed in His name

When Andrew and Simon Peter met Jesus, they asked Him: “Rabbi, where do you live?” He said: “Come and see.” They went, and stayed for the rest of the day. Did Mary, His mother, return to find strangers in her house and welcome and serve them in her Son’s name? Do we welcome and serve one another in His name?

MARRIAGE MATTERS are inspiring and very human considerations which can sow seeds of hope, offer meaningful challenges and encourage an openness in couples to deepen their relationship with each other and with God.

Bishop Jean Laffitte, Secretary to the Pontifical Council for the Family, has himself written the very positive and encouraging Foreword for this unique online resource.

We encourage you to download and use these in your Parish and Diocesan newsletters, anywhere that will help raise the profile of marriage.
