TWO IN ONE FLESH
First Sunday of Advent
(Jeremiah 33:14-16; 1 Thess 3:12-4:2; Luke 21:25-28,34-36)
Keeping the star of our love burning brightly
Jeremiah’s joy reminds us of the weeks before our wedding, a time when we were deeply aware of our love for one another. Since then, many cares have threatened to divert us from that love and it has sometimes been necessary to make a special effort to share, listen and forgive to keep the star of our love burning brightly.
Weekly reflections on the Sunday Mass scripture readings
This week’s reflection…
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.

“The personal encounter with Christ through reading the Word of God together at home constitutes an inspired source of daily living for couples.”
The Synod Fathers
“MARRIAGE MATTERS offers a wonderful resource to couples to help them relate to the Sunday scripture readings and so enhance their love for one another."
Bishop Peter Doyle
