"What God has joined together, no human being must separate.”

"What God has joined together, no human being must separate.”
Francesc Badia
Friday of the Seventh Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel text
Mk 10:1-12
The Pharisees approached him and asked, “Is it lawful for a husband to divorce his wife?” They were testing him. He said to them in reply, “What did Moses command you?” They replied, “Moses permitted a husband to write a bill of divorce and dismiss her.” But Jesus told them, “Because of the hardness of your hearts he wrote you this commandment."
Gospel's Commentary
Today the Pharisees come back again to set a trap for Jesus. Ironically they claim that Moses approved the divorce. But Jesus does reply: -In that case God had to acquiesce because of your hard and selfish heart. -God did not create marriage for divorce, but for Love: that authentic love that neither stops burning nor is finished!
