Mercy Gospel Reflection: June 19


Gospel Reflections for Married Couples

19 June – 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

In this week’s gospel, Jesus challenges us with the words “For anyone who want to save his life will lose it; but anyone who loses his life for my sake, that man will save it.

What gain, then, is it for a man to have won the whole world and to have lost or ruined his very self?”

Take some time to reflect on what these words mean for your married life.

In what ways are you being called to give more of your life for your spouse and marriage?
