"For this reason a man shall leave his
father and mother and be joined to his
wife, and the two shall become one
flesh. So they are no longer two but one
flesh. Therefore what God has joined
together, no human being must
separate." - Mk 10:7-9
27TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
"Because of the hardness of
your hearts he wrote you this
commandment. But from the
beginning of creation, God
made them male and
female ..." In today's Gospel,
Jesus sheds light on the
natur e of Chr i stian
marriage. The Pharisees were trying to trick him, but Jesus
transformed their plot into a teachable moment. Speaking of
the Mosaic law that allowed a man to divorce his wife, Jesus
indicated that this man-made law was not the standard by
which marriage should be understood. Instead, he referred
back
to
"the
begi nning
of
creati on."
In the story of Adam and Eve, we see the first
human couple living in a state of perfect harmony and bliss
with each other and with God. As today's Old Testament
reading reveals, Adam was thrilled with Eve. "This one, at
last, is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh," he declares
with joy and relief. God's original plan for marriage was
part of the joyful paradise in Eden. But sin entered the
world, and with it came a rupture in the pristine unity of the
m a n
a n d
t h e
w o m a n .
The tensions between husbands and wives have
been problematic ever since. Thus Jesus explains divorce as
the result of sin (i. e., "the hardness of your hearts"). But as
always, Jesus calls us to transcend the slavery of sin. And
more than that, he promises us his own divine help, his
grace, and his Spirit to enable us to accomplish what we
could not do on our own power. So when he replaces the
Mosaic law with his commandment about marriage--"what
God has joined together, no human being must separate"-he is calling us to a more beautiful understanding of
marriage: one that is blessed by the true marital unity that
can transcend the sadness of sin.
