TWO IN ONE FLESH
Last Sunday of the Year - Christ the King
(Ezek 34:11-12; 15-17 1 Cor 15:20-26; 28 Matt 25:31-46)
Called to be symbols of the way Jesus loves
Jesus says that those who respond to others are in effect responding to him. Our call as married couples is to be a symbol of Jesus’ love for us. In each small way that we show our love: doing little jobs, spending quality time together, listening, forgiving and making up, we are responding to that call and nourishing one other.

MARRIAGE MATTERS are inspiring and very human considerations which can sow seeds of hope, offer meaningful challenges and encourage an openness in couples to deepen their relationship with each other and with God.
Bishop Jean Laffitte, Secretary to the Pontifical Council for the Family, has himself written the very positive and encouraging Foreword for this unique online resource.
We encourage you to download and use these in your Parish and Diocesan newsletters, anywhere that will help raise the profile of marriage.
