Catholic Kids Homilies 27B- What is Marriage?

By | October 21, 2019


This is the 27th week in ordinary time and
this week’s Gospel is about marriage. Marriage is a vocation, a calling from God,
that brings a man and a woman together in holiness. God brings them together to do his will. In our first reading from Genesis, God has
created Adam, but he decides that it is not good for him to be alone. Why? Because God made us a lot like himself in
many ways. God himself is love, a love between the Father
and Son, shared in the Holy Spirit. God made us in his image, so we also need
love and friendship and closeness. We see this in the reading when God makes
a woman Eve from Adam’s rib and Adam rejoices. In the Gospel, Jesus calls man and woman “one
flesh” which means that they are so close and love each other so perfectly that their
souls become one. Marriage is sort of like the love between
God the Father and God the Son that is so strong that they are one God. Marriage is important to God, it is part of
his plan and God brings people together to do something in his plan. Together, they can become more holy and have
children. Some people are called to religious life or
the priesthood, but marriage is also an important vocation. In fact, marriage is so important that Jesus
says that “what God has joined together, no human being must separate.”
