    Marriage Matters

Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

(Isa 56:1, 6-7 Rom 11:13-15, 29-32 Matt 15:21-28)

Trust in each other

When we married, we promised ‘to love one another until death do us part’. In this promise we are called to put all our trust in each other, to persevere, no matter what life brings. This theme of trust is evident in the way the Canaanite woman believed that, if she persevered, Jesus would cure her daughter. He did!

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.
