Mercy Gospel Reflection: June 5


Gospel Reflections for Married Couples

5 June – 10th Sunday in Ordinary Time

In this week’s Gospel, Luke tells us that Jesus felt sorry for a widow grieving the loss of her only Son.

Many couples struggle with the experience of grief at different times in marriage; the loss of a loved one, a job, a hope or a dream.

You may know the experience of sorrow and grief in your own marriage.

Take some time today to offer your struggles to Christ asking him to bring you and your spouse new life.
