“Son of man, he then said to me, feed your belly and fill your stomach with this scroll I am giving you. I ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. He said: Son of man, go now to the house of Israel, and speak my words to them.” (EZ 3: 3-4)
The only way we can know another person well is to speak with him or her. When we talk, we have access to our inner worlds, to our values and our virtues, to our traditions and our habits, to our past and our present and to our history and our dreams. God loves us and wants a strong relationship with us. So He asks us for this using the metaphor: “feed your belly and fill your stomach with this scroll I am giving you,” so you will know me from the inside and you can tell others about me because you will “speak my words to them.” Married couples need to speak daily in order to know each other in depth and to love each other more and more.
“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart.” (Gospel Acclamation)
