THE PADRE'S PORTION 

Brothers and Sisters: Interesting that we had Ash Wednesday occur on Valentine’s Day this year! It makes for a nice opportunity to ask a whole bunch of questions about how or why we love. The ‘Deacon Matt Lenten Adventure’ this year revolves around the series out by the FORMED.org people – “Beloved”. In the first session of the series (available on line to any in our parish) talks about the very nature of the love that makes a marriage possible. A love that is rooted in the two fold need of Humans to: love another, and to be loved back. I can also add that the best testimony to True Love is the evidence that demonstrates how we can mess it up. We know that the words triangle or square have specific definitions; so also is the Love that makes a marriage thrive and survive. God made marriage as a Sacrament that points to the Love that we should live in with God. Sin separates in a marriage, and sin separates us from God. Jesus died and resurrected so that we can see that reuniting with God (after our becoming separated) is possible. Have you felt powerless to reconcile? Test Him, and see what happens.                                                                                                             Fr. David Tate
