Mercy Gospel Reflection: June 12


Gospel Reflections for Married Couples

12 June – 11th Sunday in Ordinary Time

In this week’s Gospel, we are reminded of Jesus incredible mercy and forgiveness as Christ offers his forgiveness to Mary of Magdalene.

Jesus reminds us that “it is the one who is forgiven little who shows little love.”

In marriage, couples are called to love one another in this same way, with a heart open to forgiveness.

Take some time to reflect on your marriage today.

Are there things for which you are being called to forgive your spouse?
