“Therefore what God has joined together, no human being must separate.”
(Mark 10:9)

Covenant Love

Marry me, love of my life.
Allow me to love, cherish and support you as my wife.
Remember our romancing then and now;
Remember our wedding, our covenant vow.
In sickness, in health, for richer or poorer,
in life and hereafter ‘til death do us part.
Anniversaries celebrated with family and friends,
who share the joy of our loving hearts.
God, you are the heavenly match-maker, our binding force.
Erase for us always the thought of divorce.

For Reflection and Sharing:

  1. What is the difference between romantic and covenant love?
  2. What was the view of marriage in Moses’ time?
  3. Why did Moses give permission for divorce?
  4. What exactly is “hardness of heart”?
  5. What is Jesus’ response to the Pharisees question?

Congratulations on your beautiful Poem on Marriage that is so needed
