Marriage Matters Reflection

A Reflection from Marriage Matters (www.twoinoneflesh.org.uk) for this Sunday 

Last Sunday in Ordinary Time: Christ the King (2 Sam 5:1-3;  Col 1:11-20;  Luke 23:35-43)

Let us radiate His life and light and goodness

‘Today you will be with me in paradise’ – Jesus’ words as He hung on the cross; even in His agony, He still chose only to love. Through Him, we are given the strength to bear anything joyfully; with the saints we ‘inherit the light’. Today, let us radiate His life, light and goodness, acknowledging Him as our Lord and King.
