gather together in my name

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (MT 18: 20) 

Technically, married couples are the ones who can achieve this level naturally: they are married, living together, sleeping together, taking care of children together, etc.
But only technically, because in the people world, nothing works without inviting free will and reason. It is not only “gathered together,” it is also “in my name.” Now we talk about recognizing God’s will for us, about looking for common good for our unity with God and with our family; and this is more complicated than just “gathered together.”

“God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.” (Gospel Acclamation)
