This one began to build but did not have the resources to finish

“Which of you wishing to construct a tower does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if there is enough for its completion? Otherwise, after laying the foundation and finding himself unable to finish the work the onlookers should laugh at him and say, ‘This one began to build but did not have the resources to finish.’” (LK 14: 28-30)

Every relationship, especially marriage, is like “constructing a tower”-to see the world from a higher perspective, to have a place that protects us from difficult conditions, a place to stay close and to have a space to be together. It is much easier to “construct a tower” than to build a relationship, because we need to collect resources all the time; before, during and after construction. A day without construction is a day of deconstruction.

“Let your face shine upon your servant; and teach me your laws.” (Gospel Acclamation)
