Mercy Gospel Reflection: Aug 21


Gospel Reflections for Married Couples

21 August  – 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time

In this week’s Gospel, Jesus reminds us that the “last will be first, and those now first will be last.”

Think about your marriage.

How often do you put your needs ahead of those of your spouse?

Sometimes it’s difficult to appreciate the needs of our spouse. At times we can lead such separate lives at work and home.

Is Jesus calling you in this week’s Gospel to consider the needs of your spouse and to put them first?
