TWO IN ONE FLESH
The Birth of John the Baptist
(Isaiah 49:1-6 Acts 13:22-26 Luke 1:57-66, 80)
Called by God in a unique Sacrament
Today’s readings highlight that John the Baptist was someone special in God’s eyes. The great challenge for us as married couples, is to hear Isaiah’s words “You are my servant in whom I shall be glorified” and apply them to ourselves. Never forget, God has chosen and graced the two of us to live this unique Sacrament of Marriage!
“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
“MARRIAGE MATTERS offers a wonderful resource to couples to help them relate to the Sunday scripture readings and so enhance their love for one another."

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.
