Joseph Keefe, Pastor Father Caesar, Parochial Vicar MASS TIMES: What Does Christ Have To Do With Marriage? Saturday 5:15 pm The married couple is made up of two human subjects, an I, and a you, a Sunday 7:30 9:00 and 10:45 am man and a woman, who decide to walk together towards their destiny, Weekdays towards their happiness. What they base their relationship on, how they Mon, Tues, Thurs & Fri. 9:00 am conceive it, all depends on the image that each of them has of their own life, Wednesday 7:00 am Reconciliation of the realization of their self. In other words, the relationship depends on Starting Friday, January 22, there will be how they each answer the questions: Who am I? What is a human being? reconciliation from 8:30-9:00 am. Also The true answer to these questions is revealed in the relationship with the Saturday 4:00-5:00 pm or by person we love. Nothing wakes us up more than this: nothing makes us more appointment. aware of our desire for happiness that constitutes us more than the person NEWCOMERS that we love. His or her presence is such a great good that makes us realize Please register after Mass in the Hospitality Room at Church, or at the how deep and true this desire is: an infinite desire. parish office. And at the same time that it is revealed to us that our desire has limitless dimension, we are offered a possibility of fulfillment. Nothing helps us understand the Mystery as much as the ―Love between a man and a woman, where body and soul are inseparably joined and human beings glimpse an apparently irresistible promise of happiness‖ (Deus Caritas Est, Benedict XVI). Love promises infinity, or the eternal, or the divine. The man and woman, each with limits, provokes in the spouse a desire for fullness that is disproportionate to either one‘s ability to satisfy it. Either one can provoke a hunger that that neither can fill. Hence, the frustration and irritability that many times spring up within married couples, and the disappointment they fall into, unless they understand the true nature of the their relationship. Shakespeare‘s Romeo says of his fair one: Her beauty shouts: ―It is not I. I am only a reminder. Look! Look! What do I remind you of?‖ This is the dynamic of the sign, of which the relationship of a man and woman is a moving example. The more they live the beloved‘s presence as a sign of Another –which is the beloved‘s truth – the more they await and long for the other. The true nature of their relationship is this: each is a sign of the divine Mystery for the other. We offer the witness of Christian married couples with an awareness the ―we hold this treasure in earthen vessels, that the surpassing power be of God and not from us.‖ ---- This is a very partial summary of a ten page paper by Father Julian Corron.
