Reflection for Wednesday September 28, Twenty-sixth Week in Ordinary Time; Luke 9:57-62

Gospel: Luke 9:57-62
As Jesus and his disciples were proceeding on their journey, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.”Jesus answered him, “Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head.” And to another he said, “Follow me.” But he replied, “Lord, let me go first and bury my father.” But he answered him, “Let the dead bury their dead. But you, go and proclaim the Kingdom of God.” And another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but first let me say farewell to my family at home.” Jesus answered him, “No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the Kingdom of God.”

Reflection:
How do you follow the Lord inside the Sacrament of Matrimony? You follow the Lord by being faithful to your marriage vows. We know for a fact that the priest who marries the husband and wife does it in the person of Jesus Christ. Therefore the two persons  becomes one through the Sacrament of Matrimony courtesy of Jesus.

However, no marriage is made in heaven, every marriage goes through the fire of trials and tribulations. But if both spouses are serious in following the Lord through the Sacrament of Matrimony. Both spouses should always find it in their hearts to forgive whatever offenses that was committed against them.

This simply means that there should always be a sacred room for forgiveness in the heart of hearts of married couples. This is for the reason that married couples are not perfect, in fact both are flawed individuals united by Jesus in the Sacrament of Matrimony.

Therefore, forgiveness must be one of those select requirements for both husband and wife if they want to follow the Lord. But forgiveness doesn’t come cheap, it comes with a very high price tag.

 However, if the Lord is present their union and if both spouses are serious in their desire to follow the Lord. There would always be love, forgiveness and humility until they breathe their last. -  Marino J. Dasmarinas
