Bond between the Sacraments of Eucharist and Marriage

Pope Benedict XVI spoke this week to the Ponitifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant Peoples.  We have so many families living in my own area who would fall into this category, and their living conditions can be so very difficult.  When we look at areas of need around our world, sometimes its easy for us to forget about and to neglect those living in poverty in our own backyards. 

I was moved by this quote from the CNA article about this event:

"People who go to Mass …find in the Eucharist a powerful allusion to their own family, their own marriage; and they are encouraged to live their lives from the point of view of faith, seeking in divine grace the strength to succeed," the Pope underscored.

To read the article in full visit: Church must protect migrant families, strengthen marriage, Holy Father maintains
