Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Use this 53-page unit study to help teach children About what Jesus says about marriage and divorce. This lesson is based on Mark 10:2-12.
In this week’s Gospel, Jesus teaches about marriage and divorce. He points out that since Creation, man and woman were joined and united in a way that was not to be separated by another human being. Christ also says, “And they two shall be in one flesh.” Marriage is a sacrament. It is sacred. It is binding until death. Anyone who causes this bond to be broken, sins against the dignity of marriage.
