  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 19:3-12)
Jesus deals with the issue of divorse by taking his hearers back to the beginning and formation of creation and to God's plan for the human race. In Gospel at Genesis we see God's aim and ideal that two people who marry should become so indissolubly “one” that they are one heart and one flesh. That perfectness is found in the indestructible union of first parents. They were created for each other and for no one else. They are the prototype and symbol for all who were to come. Jesus explains that Moses allowed divorce as a concession in view of a lost principle. Jesus sets the high ideal of the wedded state before those who are ready to accept his commands. Jesus, likewise sets the high ideal for those who liberally give up marriage for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Both marriage life and the single life are calls from God to live a sacred life, that is to live as wedded couples or as singles who belong not to themselves but to God. Our lives are not our personal, but they belong to Him. He gives power, joy, and blessing to those who seek to follow his way of sanctity in their situation of life. Do we seek the Jesus and his blessings for our sacred life?
