“Some Pharisees approached Jesus, and tested him, saying, ‘Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause whatever?’” (MT 19: 3)
The very old question, now popular: “is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause whatever?” The problem is that the original question was first “to test” Our Lord and the second one-the perspective of this question. A man is not satisfied with his wife, so he has the right “to divorce his wife for any cause whatever.” We know Our Lord’s answer. He always protects God’s vision for marriage and our dignity. When we strengthen our love, when we protect our rituals, we are inspiring others to protect what God has made one flesh.
“Receive the word of god, not as the word of men, but, as it truly is, the word of God.” (Gospel Acclamation)
