Friends of the Rosary,

Today, Christ Jesus talks to us in the Gospel of Mark (Mk 10:1-12) about marriage’s mystery and sacramental union.

“But from the beginning of creation, God made them male and female.
For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother
and be joined to his wife,
and the two shall become one flesh.

So they are no longer two but one flesh.
Therefore, what God has joined together,
no human being must separate.”

In the house, the disciples again questioned Jesus about this.
He said to them,

“Whoever divorces his wife and marries another
commits adultery against her;
and if she divorces her husband and marries another,
she commits adultery.”

This is the word of God. It’s how the Son of God defined the fundamental sacredness of marriage.

As Bishop Barron wrote today, “The deep sacramental and religious meaning of marriage—even within the Church—has been, in recent years, dramatically compromised.”

“When I was doing parish work, I would invariably ask young couples, “Why do you want to get married in church?” Most would say something like, “Because we love each other.” But I would reply, “Well, that’s no reason to get married in church.” 

“They usually looked stunned, but I meant it. You come to church to be married before God and his people when you are convinced that your marriage is not, finally, about you; that it is about God and about serving God’s purposes; that it is, as much as the priesthood of a priest, a vocation, a sacred calling.”

Marriage is sacred because it’s the holy word of God.

Come, Holy Spirit, come!

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!
