to serve and to give life

March 20, 2019 6:00 am

“Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave. Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (MT 20: 26-28)

These words describe every vocation, but in a very special way—marriage. Spouses serve each other and give life to each other and together serve their children. A free, creative and joyful gift of selves is the essence of family life.

“I am the light of the world, says the Lord; whoever follows me will have the light of life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
