TWO IN ONE FLESH
Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time
(1 Sam 26:2,7-9,12-13,22-23; 1 Cor 15:45-49; Luke 6:27-38)
An unconditional way of life
Today’s Scripture sets out a blueprint for life: love enemies, bless those who curse you, turn the other cheek, give without expecting anything in return, don’t judge or condemn. When marrying and promising ‘to have and to hold’, ‘for better for worse’, we said yes to this way of life: an unconditional acceptance of one another without counting the cost!
“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.
