No longer two, but one flesh

“He said in reply, “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator made them male and female and said, for this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined together, man must not separate.” (MT 19: 4-6)

Today we celebrate the memory of St. Maximilian Kolbe, Martyr, Polish priest, Franciscan father, who was killed in Concentration Camp in Auschwitz giving his life for the life of another prisoner, who was a husband; “so they are no longer two, but one flesh.” What is a dignity of marriage, if Fr. Kolbe gave his life to protect just one married man. How important are our Programs, because our Programs protect marriages, couples unity. Lucky we are, we can serve in something bigger than we can imagine.

“Receive the word of God, not as the word of men, but, as it truly is, the word of God.” (Gospel acclamation)
