Twenty Seventh Sunday in Ordinary TmeMark 10:2-12
It is so interesting to note that in today’s gospel, Jesus discusses divorce and the innocence of children. And today is “Respect Life Sunday.”
This should make perfect sense in our minds. Jesus asks us to become as little children in order to enter the kingdom of God. And the beauty of family life begins and is sustained by the endurance of a couple given to each other in marriage.
Family life is the bedrock of a peaceful and orderly community, the foundation of an enduring country.
When we respect life, children, Mom, Dad, and grandparents, we will give strength to all around us, and ultimately, our world.
