Daily Vitamins for Spiritual Growth by Anthony M. Coniaris


This book of daily readings is wonderful. For today, the Feast of the Beheading of John the Baptist (our parish’s feast day), there’s a bit on marriage, pointing out how the church holds up the ideal that “two persons, choosing to become one flesh and one spirit in Christ will take each other for better or for worse, and forsaking all others, continue to grow together.” The emphasis of today’s reading is that we’re not to go into marriage thinking, “well, okay, this will work for now, I’ll just hang there for as long as we’re ‘into’ it. ”

I’m looking forward to the wedding this weekend!
