Mercy Gospel Reflection: Aug 7


Gospel Reflections for Married Couples

7 August  – 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time

At the end of this week’s Gospel, Jesus tells us that when a person has a great deal given them, a great deal will be demanded of them.

Through our marriage, God had entrusted to us the life of our spouse; one of God’s greatest gifts.

Take some time to reflect on whether you’ve treated this gift from God, your spouse, with the care, dignity and love that they deserve.

What could you do this week for your spouse to show your love and care for this great gift in your life from God?
