Lizzie postAs you probably know by now, this morning the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that states cannot ban same-sex marriage.

The definition of marriage has been changed in the law of the land.

However, regardless of today’s SCOTUS ruling, for us Catholics, the definition of marriage as a sacramental institution of marriage remains unchanged: The union of man and woman in marriage is a way of imitating in the flesh the Creator’s generosity and fecundity: ‘Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh.’ All human generations proceed from this union. ‐Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2335

In the coming days, you will, no doubt, find yourself engaged in conversation, heated debates, question and answer sessions with loved ones, friends, foes… The Archdiocese of St. Louis has put together various tools, images, memes, videos, etc. to help you if you need it and, certainly, to share it in order to help the rest of our culture better understand that, the Church isn’t against anyone’s right to the pursuit of happiness; however, She has certain teachings that cannot change to meet the approval of the culture in which She resides and that these teachings exist in order for all God’s children to live in happiness and holiness in this life so that we can live with Him in the next.

“Moment of Grace”

This past week you probably noticed I had a terrible time with my stomach. I mean it was really horrible for me. It had been so long since I had my stomach hurt that much to the point I did not even want to leave the bed. I tried everything and even then I tried to think at what was making me feel and hurt this way.

I remember that evening texting my husband who I knew was at work and did not have his phone with him that I was feeling worst than I did that morning. He was worried.

This is where the moment of grace comes through….

When he arrived home he found me trying to fix dinner for us. I was determined to make him dinner, even if I could not really take a bite without wanting to cringe in pain. After about an hour of me laying down on the “couch” (it was a cot that is his friends’ when he comes over and stays) and then trying to apologize for the problem I was being.

My husband made me follow him in the bedroom and he forced me to finally go back to bed. He had to go back into work I believe (I cannot remember all the details). After a while I finally went to sleep.

While I was sleeping though he had come back and it was not until later I learned all he did while I was sleeping that made me realize how much God had graced me with such a husband.
