Friday of the Nineteenth Week in Ordinary Time ‘a’

Today we read that “the Creator made them male and female and said, for this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh? So they are no longer two, but one flesh.” They are no longer two, but one. I like this image and often preach about that during my wedding homilies. The sacrament of marriage is the only sacrament that connects two people together and makes them one -- one flesh. But what does this mean to be ‘one flesh’? For me it means more than that they are inseparable. It means that like in one physical body, when one part hurts, the whole body hurts; and when one part rejoices, then the whole body rejoices. We don’t think about this very often in that way. However today we should thank God for all those wonderful married couples that give us an example of true love. Perhaps you should thank God for your spouse. He or she may not be perfect, because none of us is perfect, but you are still one -- one flesh.
