Mercy Gospel Reflection: Oct 30


Gospel Reflections for Married Couples

30 October  – 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time

In this week’s Gospel, we hear once again the story of Zacchaeus, who climbs the tree, eager to see Jesus.

On our wedding day we asked Christ to be the centre of our married life together.

Do we approach Christ with the same eagerness in our marriage today?

Can you see his Grace at work in the day-to-dayness of married life?

This week, we take the opportunity to welcome Christ into your home anew, just as Zacchaeus did in this week’s gospel.
