Mercy Gospel Reflection: May 15


Gospel Reflections for Married Couples

15 May – Pentecost Sunday

In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminds us that, “if you love me, you will keep my commandments.”

Are there times in your marriage when you could be more faithful?

Times perhaps when you should put your spouse’s needs before those of work or children or other interests.

Take sometime today to reflect on whether you need to reprioritise some areas of your life so as to support the needs of your spouse and fulfil that promise to love as Christ does which you made in your wedding vows.
