For the Ride Home
by Ted Bergh
27th Sunday in Ordinary Time (B)
October 4, 2009
Scripture
•This is why man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, and the two become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24)
•The Lord bless you from Zion! May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life. (Psalm 128:5)
•He who consecrates and those who are consecrated have one origin. (Hebrews 2:11)
•For this reason a man shall leave his mother and father and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two but one flesh. (Mark (10:7)
 
Reflection
•How would you improve relations with the other?
•How could the other improve your relationship?
•What could you do today to improve your life?
•How is your God like or different from the other that you love and who loves you?

Touch me with that hand, seek me with those eyes, run toward me with those limbs. I am not far from you; I am the God who is near, the word in your mouth and in your heart. And what is nearer to any man than his heart? It is there, entirely within, that I am found by all who seek me. For that which is outside concerns sight alone. My works are real but they are only fragile, transient things; whereas I, their creator, dwell in the depths of the pure in heart. (Anonymous)
