“A lot of people take an exception to the Church’s teaching on what marriage is and isn’t. The Church is clear that we are called to love all people: atheist or agnostic, Christian or Muslim, in-church or out-of-church, etc. Every has equal dignity including people of same-sex attraction. This week are reminded what God thinks of marriage from a scriptural point of view. God’s design is to make the man and the woman complimentary. When the man, the woman and God come together in the covenant, the sacramental sign, they image the life much like the Trinity: the beloved, the belover and the love between them. Marriage is designed to give flesh to love.” (Mark Hart)
This podcast is an excellent foundation for a weekly Bible study focused on the readings throughout the liturgical year. These Bible studies can be at the parish, at a coffee shop or even on-line.
