Mercy Gospel Reflections: Jan 3


Gospel Reflections for Married Couples

3 January – The Epiphany of the Lord

In this week’s Gospel, the wise men visit Jesus bearing gifts.

Take a moment this week to reflect, as a couple, on the wise men and women (couples) in your life to whose marriages you aspire.

As you reflect on these couples think about the qualities (gifts) they embodied.

What did you admire in their marriage?

How did it bear witness to committed married love?

How could you bring these gifts to life in your own marriage?
