Mercy Gospel Reflection: Oct 9


Gospel Reflections for Married Couples

9 October  – 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

In this week’s Gospel, only one of the ten lepers, who were healed, gives thanks to Jesus.

Sometimes it is easy for us (like the nine lepers) to take the many blessings in our life for granted.

How easy it is to take all that God has given us in our marriage for granted?

Are there aspects of your married life, things that your spouse brings to your marriage that you’ve failed to appreciate?

Give thanks to God for these precious gifts, both to God and your spouse.
