Dear Friend in the Lord,

Sanctity of Marriage: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to the Pharisees that marriage is sacred.  Ponder on, “Jesus and the Church Teach that marriage is indissoluble because the vows that bind the couple is made primarily with God.  In painful challenges; trust in God who will always give the strength and wisdom to reconcile and persevere with fidelity.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 19:3-6

Some Pharisees approached Jesus, and to put him to the test they said, ‘Is it against the Law for a man to divorce his wife on any pretext whatever?’

He answered, ‘Have you not read that the Creator from the beginning made them male and female and that he said: This is why a man leaves his father and mother and becomes attached to his wife, and the two become one flesh? They are no longer two, therefore, but one flesh. So then, what God has united, human beings must not divide.’
