The Reading for Today: Mark 10:1-22
The sacredness of marriage is uplifted, its rupture denounced as sin. If this applies to you, repent of wherever there was sinfulness in your divorce. In the Lord’s forgiveness, you will find the grace to follow God’s will, most likely living with the blessing with the one to whom you are now married.
Become as a child. Do not be afraid of intimacy with the Lord, however great is the sinfulness in your life. God receives you and loves you. The Lord wants you to be wonderfully happy. Feel the sadness of the rich young man who walks away from joy, due to his attachment to wealth, instead of to the Lord.
Be very alert as the Word of the Lord comes to bring you life.
