October 3, 2021: Daily Dose of Discernment

Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” (Mark 10:2)


No married man who understands what Holy Matrimony is would ask such a self-centered question. First off, the marriage covenant is a sacrament which a husband and wife enter into for the purpose of becoming a sacrament themselves. That is, they are called to be a visible expression of the love that eternally goes on in the community of the Godhead. That being so, it’s a lifetime vocation. And since love is desiring and pursuing the good of the other and not of oneself, looking for grounds for divorce is out of the question. That’s also why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, so that he can stop being the recipient of good and start being the source of good. Couples should realize that it’s not about them but about how best they can fulfill their God-ordained mission.
