Commentary on the Gospel of
LET NO ONE SEPARATE WHAT GOD HAS JOINED
Jesus quotes the Old Testament, “Let no one separate what God has joined,” and defends the indissolubility of marriage, which is a sign of God’s undying love.
Every sacrament makes visible God’s love and grace. In the Eucharist, the consecrated bread and wine make present the body and blood of our Lord. In marriage, the love of the couple for each other is the visible sign of God’s love. A couple that nourishes and cares for each other, understands and forgives one another, remains faithful to each other throughout their lives makes palpable God’s abiding love for the world.
