A Reflection from Marriage Matters (www.twoinoneflesh.org.uk) for All Saints

All Saints (Revelation 7:2-4, 9-14;  1 John 3:1-3;  Matthew 5:1-12)

Do we recognise our sanctity?

Are we married couples among the blessed? St Paul called the members of those churches he visited, saints; he also compared the union of husband and wife with that of Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5:22-33). Are we not ‘poor in spirit…gentle…those who mourn…those who hunger and thirst for what is right…merciful…pure in heart and peacemakers’ in our own relationship?
