10/07/12 Called to Love

Homily from the Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time.

“Now when it comes to marriage, you don’t even have to bring morality into this whole thing. There are all sorts of unnecessary non-essential elements to marriage. But again, what makes marriage a unique relationship in all of humanity? Is it love? No. Lots of relationships have love. Is it commitment? No. Lots of relationships have commitment. What makes marriage unique? It is that it is a specific union of hearts and wills, culminating in biological unity oriented towards the creation of life.”
