To take the risk of letting go in a society that promotes “conspicuous consumption”, is indeed an impossible task without God’s help. And yet there’s an element of the Kingdom that pushes us to consider just that.
Jesus wants marriage, the relationship of man and woman, to be part of his proclamation of the Kingdom. It is in that most human of institutions--in the nitty-gritty of daily life--that God is at work.
Can we make a public choice for Jesus as we approach to receive the Body and Blood of Christ? Our firm, faith-filled “Amen” is a response to the Lord who is present in this great sign of our salvation.
