Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time Weekend of October 6-7, 2018
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, co-workers, 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 love, patience, understanding and kindness necessary to sustain those relationships. Take time out to prayerfully reflect on your relationships this week. Is your stewardship of these relationships as God intended? What relationships need to be healed and reconciled?
