Today as we listen to the Gospel of St. Mark we move from the conversations between Jesus and his disciples that have been the focus of the last few Sundays to a return to Jesus’ public ministry and the Pharisees testing Jesus. Today the Pharisees question Jesus about the lawfulness of divorce and Jesus quotes from the Book of Genesis and raises the profile of the love between men and women as they become flesh in marriage.
The final part of today’s Gospel takes up the theme and presents Jesus’ emphasis on the importance of family. In the love between husband and wife and the love that brings forth children. Parents and families become witnesses to the Kingdom of God, to the love of the Father for his people and our love for the Father.
Jesus takes this example even further at the end of the Gospel offering little children as an example of the kind of complete trust and dependence upon God that should be the attitude of all believers. With St. Faustina we prat Jesus I trust in You.
