Sunday Ramblings

Today is the 27th Sunday in Ordinary time and the gospel contained the passage pictured above.

Much of Father Brian's homily talked about the beginnings of the Church and the marriage of Christ to the Church (the Church being the bride of Christ).

But perhaps what struck me most was something written in our parish bulletin.

"In today's Gospel Jesus teaches us about the sacredness of marriage; a covenant that is a gift from God. Our relationships with our spouses, family, friends, coworkers, and those in our community of faith are all gifts from God. Jesus reminds us today that it is the hardened heart that damages or breaks up relationships. Good stewards understand the holiness of relationships and pray for the patience, love, understanding, and kindness necessary to sustain those relationships."

Do I have relationships that need to be healed and reconciled? Is my stewardship of these relationships as God intended them to be?

I don't know, pretty sure I have to pray for guidance and strength to find the answers to those questions raised by the passage.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.
