32nd Sunday Ordinary Time, Cycle C

Good News Inspiration for Daily Life

32nd Sunday Bulletin Insert for November 6, 2022.

Description: In Luke 20:27-38, Jesus explained the resurrection in terms of marriage. A marriage is supposed to be a reflection of God’s love for his people. So why would Jesus say that marriage is not a part of the resurrection of the dead? This bulletin insert for the 32nd Sunday of Ordinary Time explains that here on earth, love is imperfectly given and imperfectly received. Therefore, it’s constantly dying and being resurrected again, every day, to the extent that each spouse repents and forgives.

Perfect love is God. We live as true children of God when we love our brothers and sisters the way he loves them. Marriage does not exist in heaven because it’s an imperfect love: We love our spouses more than we love others. In heaven, we will love our spouses fully (yes, even our ex-spouses!) and we will love everyone else just as much. And those who have loved us poorly will love us better than the best spouse could love us now.

Marriage is only an earthly foreshadowing of the divine, faithful, creative love that we will share with everyone in heaven.
