The grace of marriage (Homily)

Homily for 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time preached on October 4, 2015

By Father Perry D. Leiker, pastor

"With Jesus, we continue to lift up marriage to the highest ideal possible," Father Perry tells us in his homily for the 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time. "This is what we want to strive for and reach for and hope for and pray for and do to our very best to live it every day — and when we fail in it, to reconcile. Jesus lifts this ideal for us because he knows the gift that it is, the power that it is, the grace that it is. It's an expression of the liveliness of the kingdom of God among us."
