But they will not lift a finger to move them.

“For they preach, but they do not practice. They tie up heavy burdens hard to carry and lay them on people’s shoulders, but they will not lift a finger to move them.” (MT 23: 4)

There are not many priests who want to serve couples. It is not easy to understand a totally different vocation. However, when they practice what they teach, life becomes simpler. Love is the same in every vocation; it needs the same things like gentleness, respect, giving and not demanding, finding good quality time to practice your relationship, trying to understand first, then be understood, and uniting everything in everything—be consistent. These things are not easy to practice, but when we practice, we understand each other fast, and huge differences between our vocations become smaller and smaller. 

“Cast away from you all the crimes you have committed, says the LORD, and make for yourselves a new heart and a new spirit.” (Verse before the Gospel)
