27th Sunday in Ordinary TimeOctober 8, 2012
LET’S TALK ABOUT SEX
If I were to ask you to associate a word with Church and Sex, my bet is NO would be at the top of your responses; however, our readings today support something far different.
Jesus statements on divorce and then illustration of children speak to a much stronger desire for healing and right relationship over rules and laws. Love requires accountability and discipline becuase it is not just about how much two people love one another; rather how much they love together God and the things of God.
Still, society often gets it wrong. Our challenge, however, is not to condemn but affirm. We must ask ourselves this Sunday what we are doing right in our relationsips?
