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

Thirty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time (Wisdom 11:22-12:2; Thess 1:11-2:2; Luke 19:1-10)

The call to praise and affirm each other

Jesus affirmed Zacchaeus by going to his house for a meal.  How often is our focus on what we want our spouse to do rather than on how can we bring him/her life and joy?  A daily reflection on where we need ask for forgiveness and on how we can affirm our spouse for something, brings us both new life.
