24 May Love and Fidelity (Mk 10:8-9)
They are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, no human being must separate. ~ Mk 10:8-9
Reflection: In a very real sense, the culture of death has only been able to arise because the culture of love – of marital love – has been in a state of decay. Our culture’s understanding of marriage has been cheapened, and the sacrificial nature of sexuality and parenthood. Where the life-long, sexual faithfulness of husband and wife is not prized, the sexual act loses its whole reason for being. As a result, pre-marital sex flourishes and “unplanned” and “accidental” pregnancies occur –and the environment becomes ripe for abortion.
Challenge: We have to thoroughly understand and live – as difficult and as counter-cultural as it may be at this point – Jesus’ teaching about marriage. A fantastic place to find His teachings on the subject gathered in one place and reflected upon under the guidance of the Spirit is the Catechism of the Catholic Church, starting here at Paragraph 1601. Make time today to click that link and spend 5 minutes shoring up your foundation in Christ’s truth.
Pray LIFE Runners Creed to end abortion. Add Prayers. Let’s pray now.
