04-25-2023 Matthew Ch 19 v-0712 Another marry adultery commit




Gospel of Matthew Ch 19 v- 7 thru 12

7 They said to him, “Then why did Moses command that the man give the woman a bill of divorce and dismiss [her]? 8 He said to them, “Because of the hardness of your hearts Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. 9 I say to you, whoever divorces his wife (unless the marriage is unlawful) and marries another commits adultery.” 10 [His] disciples said to him, “If that is the case of a man with his wife, it is better not to marry.” 11 He answered, “Not all can accept [this] word, but only those to whom that is granted. 12 Some are incapable of marriage because they were born so; some, because they were made so by others; some, because they have renounced marriage for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Whoever can accept this ought to accept it.”


How do you know if your marriage is unlawful? Many of us have been married more than once and still have the perfect union with another in the end. The Bill of Divorce Moses offered gave hope for the women who were abandoned but did God really want man and woman to divorce? Paul wrote to the Corinthians that divorce is ok if the other spouse denies the faith. To live with a nonbeliever is tough and offers an out of the marital bond if so desired but truly God didn’t want divorce unless God (The Church) sees it as unlawful because of extenuating circumstances. The Sacrament of Holy Matrimony is taken very seriously and allows for the annulment to take place only after an extensive investigation into the very aspect of your reasons why you have divorced your spouse.


Mine was centered around the fact that we went through an abortion after getting my first wife pregnant within one month of knowing her and then marrying her within six months of the same date. I must confess I was never taught about abortion only it was a reason for my ex-wife to say she didn’t want to be pregnant in a wedding dress. For years of been tormented by this killing of a child and I have sought Redemption once I realized years later it was a mistake more than a choice. Combined with other instances of homosexual activity by my ex-wife I was granted a full annulment and remarried in the Church as a devout Catholic who seeks to share the beauty of living Redeemed. My life is an open book describing the difficulties of sin and this realization has caused severe damage between father and child from this marriage I had annulled to practice my faith of living for Truth and the Eucharist of Jesus! Amen.


This what the Catechist of the Catholic Church says about this bond called “The unity and indissolubility of marriage” in number 1644. “The love of the spouses requires, of its very nature, the unity and indissolubility of the spouses’ community of persons, which embraces their entire life: “so they are no longer two, but one flesh.”153 They “are called to grow continually in their communion through day-to-day fidelity to their marriage promise of total mutual self-giving.”154 This human communion is confirmed, purified, and completed by communion in Jesus Christ, given through the sacrament of Matrimony. It is deepened by lives of the common faith and by the Eucharist received together.” Amen.


Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for Boston aka Keith. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. Silence for the prayers of others dealing with the war in Ukraine. In the Holy Spirit we pray our brothers in Kairos especially a prayer for our men in blue. We pray for Holy Mother Church. We pray for our Holy Mother for the sister of Jackie. Daily prayers for our neighbor Thelma. Prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Another marry adultery commit**


The Israelites replied Moses why

Divorce bill give he commanded

Your hearts of hardness you can’t deny

Not from the beginning Jesus reprimanded


Wife divorce whoever unless

Unlawful marriage to the test

Another marry adultery commit

Not marry better disciples quipped


Word not accepted by all

Granted to only a few

Marriage incapable to those born to fall

Others made some marriage unable to do


Marriage renounced by some

Heaven’s Kingdom their fun

Accept whoever marriage shun

Feast not all were made to come
