Pastoral challenges and marriage
It does not take a rocket scientist to know that marriage and family life are facing challenges today unlike those that have been seen in previous generations. In this series on marriage that I have been presenting, it is time to take a look at these pastoral challenges to marriage in our time.

What is 'essential' to marriage?

As we continue this important catechesis on marriage, it is time for us to bring together two important facts about sacramental marriage. We need to see how the essential properties and elements of marriage are, in a sacramental union, strong signs of Christ’s love for the Church.

What are the effects of a sacramental marriage?

In this catechesis on the nature of marriage we have been considering what marriage is as revealed by God and as written in the very nature of the human person, created as male and female. Most recently we have seen that Jesus Christ has taken the natural institution of marriage and elevated it to the dignity of a sacrament between baptized spouses. We saw that this sacramental bond is a sign of Christ’s nuptial bond with his Bride, the Church.

Fifth Sunday of Lent
Today’s Gospel centers on the Paschal Mystery in a variety of ways. The grain of wheat that must die so that it can bear fruit seems a weak analogy of what will happen to each of us. We will die and we will have eternal life. Those who love their lives will lose them. This is not an abstract Gospel. Death is not a subject that most of us want to contemplate. How many of us, because we do not want to think about death, miss the joy of resurrection? Because we do not confront Good Friday, our Easter alleluia lacks enthusiasm.

The promise of Easter is in Lent

Third Sunday of Lent
Before I came to Oregon, I looked in vain for signs of spring and new life during Lent. For the better part of three months snow and ice covered the city sidewalks. In Oregon, spring comes early and this year it seems to have come even earlier than usual. The crocuses are already blooming in my yard and the trees are filled with buds. We are in the midst of Lent and I already have that Easter feeling.

Family: "Become what you are!"
There is a pithy saying that is used to help biblical theologians: “A text taken out of context is not a proof text but a pretext.” It means that when we are reading things and making judgments we need to make sure that we are aware of the big picture; prudence and right judgment exhort us to understand individual threads in the context of the whole tapestry.
