A Reflection from Marriage Matters (www.twoinoneflesh.org.uk) for this Sunday

Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time (Amos 6:1, 4-7; 1 Tim 6:11-16; Luke 16:19-31)

Beware of complacency and compensating

Today we are warned about being complacent. Too often, we think everything is fine in our lives and then we realise we’ve drifted apart and feel isolated from our spouse; the atmosphere is strained; it is lonely in bed.  The danger is to compensate with activities outside our marriage instead of sitting down, holding hands and getting back together again.
