    Marriage as God intends: beauty and struggle

    A homily written by The Most Reverend Paul S. Loverde featured in the Arlington Catholic Herald

    It is easy to identify the theme of today’s readings, for it is clearly stated in both the first reading from the book of Genesis and in the Gospel account from Saint Mark. It is there we hear God’s word about the gift of marriage, summed up so concisely by Jesus when He said, “...From the beginning of creation, God made them male and female. ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, no human being must separate.”
