4th Week of Advent 

Reflection for the fourth Sunday of Advent from Marriage Matters

(www.twoinoneflesh.org.uk)

Fourth Sunday of Advent (Isaiah 7:10-14   Romans 1:1-7   Matthew 1:18-25)

Taking courage from love

The Gospel relates how Joseph overcame his serious doubts about Mary ‒ and married her! She too had faced her own fears about the future ‒ and said “Yes!”  We too can have doubts and lack confidence in the future, but like Mary and Joseph we can take courage from our love for each other and God’s love for us too.

Reflection for the Christmas day from Marriage Matters

Christmas Day (Midnight Mass) (Isaiah 9:1-7  Titus 2:11-14  Luke 2:1-14)

Excitement and joy

Mary knew the excitement and joy of this special day; Joseph too. He and Mary were ‘together’ beginning a new journey, and no doubt believed all was going to be well.

We, too, like Mary and Joseph, need to be open to the joy and excitements of new beginnings ‘together’, especially when they involve experiences that are totally new.

Reflection for the Feast of the Holy Family from Marriage Matters

(www.twoinoneflesh.org.uk) 

The Holy Family (Ecclesiastes 3:2-6, 12-14   Col 3:12-21   Matthew 2:13-15, 17-23)

Be kind and gentle when we are making decisions

The readings today challenge us to listen sensitively to each other; to be prepared to let go of our own desires and to be deeply aware of each other’s thoughts and feelings as we make decisions together. For this we need to ask the Holy Spirit to open our hearts to the gifts of compassion and understanding, courage and hopefulness.

MARRIAGE MATTERS

Mary, Mother of God  (1st January)  (Numbers 6:22-27   Galatians 4:4-7   Luke 2:16-21)

A new title

On our wedding day we received a new and special title of ‘Husband’ and ‘Wife’. These titles announce to our family and friends our unique and special place in God’s plan for us, His Church, and the world. In celebrating this Feast Day let us remember who we are and, like Mary, ‘treasure and ponder it in our hearts’.
