From the Pastor

God's Love is Forever (part II of II)

10-14-2018Fr. Don Kline, V.F.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Last week I introduced Our Lord's teaching on the Sacrament of Marriage. First and foremost, the Sacrament of Marriage is meant to be a sign of the love between God and us. Because marriage is to be a sign of love between God and us, marriage is meant to permanent throughout our lifetime. But what happens when it is not meant to be permanent? We have to look again at what Our Lord teaches us about marriage. Simply put, Jesus gave us this teaching on marriage. It is a lifelong, unbreakable union between a man and a woman. Marriage is like a mirror image of the union between God and his people which is meant to be an unbreakable union.
