Marriage Matters Reflection
Palm Sunday (The Lord’s Passion) (Isaiah 50:4-7; Philippians 2:6-11; Luke 22:14 – 23:56)
The Kingdom of God is a lifestyle choice
Today’s readings are deeply moving, calling us to what? Can we stand up for our marriages; make lifestyle choices, putting our marriage first? Joseph of Arimathea stood up for what he believed in, when others had run away. He lived in ‘hope of seeing the Kingdom of God’. This kingdom is among us; let us choose it today – for us.
