At the Beginning of Creation, It Was Not Like This

Twenty-Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

In His encounter with the Pharisees, Jesus teaches on the very nature of marriage, as the corporeal sign which points to the very mystery of God.  A communion of persons, whose reciprocal gift is built into the complementarity of male and female, all the way in the first chapter of Genesis.  This self gift, or self donation, in the Sacrament of Marriage, has by nature a complementary signature.  Only in the context of this complementary love of male and female, between husband and wife, does humanity share in the life giving creative power of God, who is the source of all life.

In the beginning . . .“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.”

You are Called to Greatness

Twenty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time

You are called to greatness. You are called to shine like the sun.
One of the greatest tragedies of our times is that most Christians don’t even accept this, or know this.
But when you do know it, and when you do accept it, everything is new in Christ.

The Eucharist - Body, Blood, Soul and Divity of our Lord, Jesus Christ“He who loves his wife loves himself.
For no one hates his own flesh
but rather nourishes and cherishes it,
even as Christ does the church,
because we are members of his body.”

will live, and everyone who lives and
believes in me will never die.”
