Meditation: Love in Marriage and the Family

Reflection on love in marriage and the family

Konkani Catholics member, Savio Noronha from Dubai (UAE), shares a personal reflection on love in marriage and the family following the example of Christ's love for his bride, the Church.

Love is both a motive and an action. Jesus Christ's love for the Church led to action: His sacrificial death on the cross. It will result in the wonderful fellowship of heaven (Rev.19)

What love does in marriage

In marriage where the promise is fading, love translated into action can bring the brightness back into the promise.

This brings us to 1 Corinthians 13. This chapter about love has no greater application than within the context of marriage. Verses 4-8 tell us what love does.As you read these verses, consider how they apply to your marriage.

"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believe all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails".
Remember that Jesus Never Fails. Do ask Him To be with you and your family always. Make it a habbit to pray together before going to bed and upon rising. I'm sure God will bless each one of us constantly.


Dear Lord Jesus, we invite You in our family. Help us always to understand, love, forgive and to be faithful to each other and to spend time with our children. Mother Mary Guide us and protect us wherever we go through Christ our Lord. Amen.
