A New Year’s Thought 2021

This is taken from “What the Wind Knows” by Amy Harmon

“I can’t imagine all men love their women the way I love (mine). If they did, the streets would be empty, and the fields would grow fallow. Industry would rumble to a halt and markets would tumble as men bowed at the feet of their wives, unable to need or notice anything but her. If all men loved their wives the way I love mine, we would be a useless lot. Or maybe the world would know peace. Maybe the wars would end, and the strife would cease as we centered our lives on loving and being loved.”

“Matrimony is a Gospel in itself.” – Benedict XVI

During his opening address to the Thirteeth Synod of Bishops on the New Evangelization October 7, 2012 Pope Benedict XVI had this to say about the Sacrament of Matrimony.

(Referring to Gen 2:24 and Mark 10:7-8) What does this word say to us today? It seems to me that it invites us to be more aware of a reality, already well known but not fully appreciated: that matrimony is a Gospel in itself, a Good News for the world of today, especially the dechristianized world. The union of a man and a woman, their becoming “one flesh” in charity, in fruitful and indissoluble love, is a sign that speaks of God with a force and an eloquence which in our days has become greater because unfortunately, for various reasons, marriage, in precisely the oldest regions evangelized, is going through a profound crisis. And it is not by chance. Marriage is linked to faith, but not in a general way. Marriage, as a union of faithful and indissoluble love, is based upon the grace that comes from the triune God, who in Christ loved us with a faithful love, even to the Cross. Today we ought to grasp the full truth of this statement, in contrast to the painful reality of many marriages which, unhappily, end badly. There is a clear link between the crisis in faith and the crisis in marriage. And, as the Church has said and witnessed for a long time now, marriage is called to be not only an object but a subject of the new evangelization.”

Matthew Kelly Quote

Whenever brave men and women step forth and celebrate their essential purpose by striving to live holy lives, they do a great service not only to Catholics but also to people of every belief…The Church, and indeed the whole world, desperately awaits a few brave souls who will stand up and remind us of our great spiritual heritage by redirecting us toward the goal of the Christian life: living holy lives. – Matthew Kelly, “Rediscover Catholicism”

When married couples intentionally live their Sacramental vocation, they are purposfully striving to live holy lives.
