Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.
Good gracious -What an attractive couple!Long life to them.
A wise old Priest (no not Fr Finigan - very wise but definitely not old! Ha ha) told me many years ago that marriage should not be seen as a 50:50 partnership as many seem to think it is these days. It's not about ...'you do the dishes and shopping wednesday thursday and friday and I'll do them monday tuesday and saturday'... 'you look after the baby on a monday so I can go out with my mates, and I'll look after it saturday so you can go football training'.... you know the sort of thing.No, said the Priest. Marriage is so much more. Love, TRUE love demands that you give 90% and expect 10%. When both husband and wife offer themselves selflessly to each other in this way the marriage will flourish and be graced with happiness. Sure you get the odd 'bad hair day' but that is life. Of course 'perfect love' would give 100% and expect nothing in return, but perfection is to be found only in Heaven.God Bless to all newly weds at OLR.Oh yes - forgot to mention - been ecstatically married for 30 years, yes to the same girl I fell madly in love with all that time ago. Seems like the blink of an eye.
