Weekly Devotion – October 8thWeekly Devotions
As we heard during Sunday’s Gospel, men and women are created by God in a complementary fashion. They are created to be partners in harmony with each other and to live in a state of blessed mutuality. “They are no longer two, but one body.” Sadly, when sin enters the equation this mutuality is less apparent and is much more difficult to sustain. Divorce and spousal abuse are the painful reminders of the effects of sin. The Lord Jesus elevates matrimony to the level of a sacrament, making holy matrimony a covenant of life-giving love.
We pray together: St. Jude, help us to see God’s image in every person we meet, and to love as Jesus taught us.
